About previous debconf Poetry events, Rhonda wrote: “During debconf12 in Nicaragua, we met in a bar and had some poetry. It was a great idea that inspired to have one during debconf13 in Switzerland next to the campfire, which also gave it a great ambience. debconf15 in Germany also had one at the “stonehenge” place, unfortunately there was a concert scheduled at the same time, so the idea sort of faded away”
At previous online debconf20, there was a nice poetry evening, organised by Rhonda. (Video at https://meetings-archive.debian.net/pub/debian-meetings/2020/DebConf20/48-debconf-poetry-night.webm ).
Let’s do one again this year. If you’d like to participate, contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org, joostvb on IRC) and I’ll give you instructions and access to the live event.
