crowd : 8
talks : 3

Overall an interesting and fun day. By releasing version 0.1 of GNUmed has 
reached and important milestone. This serves as a stable base for future 
releases. According to the head developers a lot of code for future is there 
already. It needs to be polished and stabilized.

If you ask me the most suprising moment was Karsten's live demo of GNUmed. He 
simulated a patient encounter and documented it in GNUmed. A lot of smart 
features showed up I did not even know about. Pretty amazing.

Most of the people there were stunned by context dependent popup, edit areas, 
phrasewheels and self learning input fields.

We all agreed that GNUmed would benefit from recording a demo session. It was 
noted that GNU/Linux seems to lack the tools to do so. Any hints ?

Due to Ian Haywoods's presence many aspects of australian requirements for a 
GNUmed deployment were discussed.

Apart from developer talk business aspects were discussed as well. The 
attending business people were on the look for a way to make money off of 
GNUmed. Which is legitimate if you ask me.

It was noted that the GNUmed project itself will always be free and 
independent. Business peolple may benefit from GNUmed by charging for 
services they provide. 

Developer shortage has not been discussed to much this time. I guess we all 
know what the situation is and can pretty much cope with the current flow of 

plan: attend Linux conference and demo GNUmed again
hack more code, rule the world

If you ask me GNUmed is in pretty good shape. Documentation is there as well. 
Features need to be documented.

Hope to see more of you guys at our next conference,
