I'm at the beautiful La Mola hotel outside of Barcelona for the Canonical SomeHands management meeting. After this we're having AllHands for the rest of this week, then UDS Karmic and the associated Bazaar sprint. (Not that far outside, only about 40km, but apparently far enough that almost everyone's taxi from the airport has got thoroughly lost.)
The place looks a lot like the campus of a software company: modern glass and concrete buildings in rolling grassy hills, and it's great to be here with these people.
So far, so good: a "view from 330,000 feet" from Mark, an interesting examination of why people join Canonical and then stop blogging from Elliot, and a promising but as-yet inconclusive discussion about cross-team collaboration in a distributed company.
