PostgreSQL@FOSDEM 2011

Yeah, FOSDEM is already a week ago, but I found no time to blog about the event. Anyway, here I go:

This years edition of FOSDEM was very successfull, especially for the PostgreSQL project. We got two tables in the main building, which gave us plenty of space to present the project and talk with visitors. In addition, we had our devroom in the main building too. So, thank you to the FOSDEM team for this smart move.

The devroom had many visitors for all talks. We managed to have 6 talks, three very technical and three more user orientated.

I came with a car full of stuff to Brussels, and leaved on Sunday with just two boxes. We gave away all stressballs and all pens, and sold all elephants (again) and mugs. Only one or two bags from PGDay.EU 2010 are left and several shirts. Time to order new merchandising stuff ;-) The Perl table next to us brought a very large camel, obviously an eye-catcher.

This year I also found time to visit other interesting talks, and managed to meet good friends again. As every year, it was a very good event, just a bit cold outside ;-)

Schon wieder Websperren

Da komme ich nichts ahnend an einem sonnigen Montag morgen im Büro an und muss feststellen, dass schon wieder einige Politiker - diesmal in Brüssel - diese alte, abgenutzte Idee von den Websperren aufgreifen und als neue Sau durch das Dorf treiben.

Die letzte Bundesregierung unseres schönen Landes hat mit viel Trara das Zugangserschwerungsgesetz kurz vor der Wahl durchgedrückt umgesetzt. Die damalige und jetzige Bundesministerin Ursula von der Leyen war die treibende Kraft hinter diesem Gesetz, über das im Vorfeld viele Gerüchte und Halb- sowie Unwahrheiten verbreitet wurden.

Nach der Wahl wollte dieses Gesetz auf einmal niemand mehr haben, warum wohl? Um so erstaunter war die versammelte politische Landschaft, als der Bundespräsident dieses Gesetz dann doch unterzeichnet hat: auf einmal hatte man das Gesetz und wusste nichts mehr damit anzufangen. Derzeit laufen Bestrebungen, dieses Gesetz wieder loszuwerden, bis dahin ist das BKA angewiesen, das Gesetz nicht anzuwenden.

So, und was macht die EU? Als ob man von den Mitgliedsstaaten nichts gelernt hat, wird der gleiche Vorschlag von der Europäischen Kommission als Richtlinie aufgelegt. Wir erinnern uns: über eine sogenannte Richtlinie wurde vor einiger Zeit auch die Vorratsdatenspeicherung eingeführt.

Lernt in Brüssel eigentlich niemand dazu?
