Aim big

The 5th anniversary of Sustatu, the Basque Slashdot, was nice. And reviews have been positive afterwards, more positive than in the other European tech event of the week, LeWeb 3 with Loic Le Meur, where opinions seem to be unanimous.

It was a bilingual event, all in Basque, including the Ubuntu Linux, OpenOffice and Firefox software used for presentations, except Ed Freyfogle's (ex Yahoo, now Lokku/Nestoria) speech and frantic 80-slide presentation, shown in mere 10 minutes of English talk. Yet, the mixture of the languages was perfect, and the tone, which began provocatively with Ed, followed that line with Iban Zaldua, a local writer and blogger, and myself. Ed called the audience, you, the leaders of Internet in Euskal Herria (Basque Country).

Were we that, really? A bunch of friends, maybe, those 100 people that attended, people that suspect Internet is big, and care about our country. Leaders or not, we took good note of Ed's advice:
  • aim big
  • focus on whatever is most important, forget the rest
  • measure twice, cut once
  • Chinese are cheaper, therefore we should hire them.
More pics from my coleague Zaloa Etxeniz, about the event and the beatiful setting, a centuries old cluster just renewed, which we had the occasion to user even before official inauguration.

Ed's presentation is here, and the rest in Basque as well. Thank you, Nestoria, for celebrating with us. We enjoyed you presence, and I suspect that the whole team of that company enjoyed the Basque Country as well: there's graphic evidence of that (location of the surfspot: Sopela).
