The original plan with the weekly tech show was only 10 minutes per show, but the last one lasted almost half an hour, so that’s great news.
We’re also having a lot of fun, but we were definitely not prepared for the response from the audience. After the last show we got tons of phone calls demanding CDs, and we didn’t even had a plan for burning and distributing them. Long story short: We’re planning a special event at Debian Day Nicaragua 08 with installfest, demo and burning stations. Lesson learned.
