Talks on colleges September 19, 2009

Hey! long time no post! I’ve been busy, so I haven’t had time to
participateof Live Blue. Let’s get down to busines, we had 2 talks
in 2 different colleges, UNIME and UFBA, here in Salvador.
UNIME first, when we got there we tought it would be a normal
talk, with just a few participants from 3º semester on, but
we (or at least me) were surprised when we saw at least 100
students from different semesters, and everything was brightfull
and colorfull for those who had never (yet) had a kernel panic
or something like it.

There were persons from users of Konectiva 4 to people who
had never heard the differences between linux and other OSs,
so it was very difficult to know what to explain and what to
consider known, so Sandro did the best choise, wich was to
explain everything… what took a little bit longer than planed,
and Tomaz didin’t had a chance to speak. At the end we asked
if there was any question, and we just recibed 2 or 3, but when
we ended the talk, half of the people who had been sitted and
shouted pretty mutch all the time came to us and asked lot’s
of questions and opinions, so we stayed there a little bit after
finished the talk to take a time to a “free speak” about our
personal opinions and experiences.

I think lot’s of people there were interested in Free Software,
and will start to use it in home. I liked the reception of the
people there so mutch that I may do some speaches of my
own there if I have the support of the group and the collage
to do that.

Now UFBA… I don’t know if call this a paradox or a irony,
but the thing is that noone went to the speach there
(wich was ment to be just for the 1º semesters), The irony
is that most of our group studies or teaches there
(me myself am trying to enter there, because it’s one,
if not the, best collage in salvador). Including some of the
young blood of the Live Blue that should had been there, but
I’ve been told that the UFBA just sayd that there would
be no class, so most of the people went home.
So we had a huge sucess and a tremendous fail… but we can
come back to UFBA another day, also we can do a presentation
on other colleges like Ruy Barbosa (where Tomaz studies) or Area1
(where I used to study). And I wanted to use this opportunity to
ask to those of you who understand portuguese to read my
blog http://avouetom.blogspot.com
it’s as the name suggest (A Vida O Universo E Tudo O Mais –
Life Universe And Everything Else), a blog about almost everything,
especially comics, movies, games and other geekies stuffs.
Live Blue… and prosper
