There was something at Debconf10 in NYC that I owe a huge thank-you to the entire community for.
I was completely surprised at how many people made a point to say hi to me, comment that they liked reading about my blog, and encouraged me to keep posting. It was dozens for sure.
I had never really thought that many people took much of an interest in what was, to me, some sort of cross between a journal and a way for family to stay in touch. I deeply appreciate all the encouragement, and the welcome that was extended to Terah, Jacob, and Oliver when they were present at Debconf events a few times.
Thank you so much to all my Debian friends I got to talk to at Debconf. It was a wonderful week and I hope to see you all again before too long. I am happy to be a part of this community.
