FSCONS: Conversations are the conference

Just had an interesting micro-conversation, with a man who spoke with a slightly Indian accent. Cambodia: No landlines, but quite developed mobile phone networks, never bothering with the previous stage of tech. Leapfrogging. Related: Ericsson deployed a solar-powered mobile base station there. That press release hits all points in the last paragraph of the leapfrogging article on Wikipedia.

Now a guy from a company called Redpill Linpro will do a talk called “Hidden gems of PostgreSQL”. Full-text search (what used to be called tsearch2 is now called FTI: full-text indexing). Pretty neat. You can specify a language setting. Stopwords in English might be regular words in another language – is means ice in Swedish.
