<polyachka> so what do you do in your free time when you don’t work on Sugar?
<alsroot> well, I do what I like, coding .. sugar
<polyachka> why did you say that Technical contributors are missing contact with teachers/users, because you sometimes miss feedback or don’t know which activities are really useful?
<alsroot> like that, in my case (dunno about others) it could be looks like “great thing in itself”, but at the end it should be used by someone
<alsroot> that’s why I’m thinking about Collab activity
<polyachka> makes sense, it should be for the children, not just a neat idea
<polyachka> What are other problems in general in or about Sugar work/environment? What would you improve?
<alsroot> well, knowing these thing is 50% of fixing, so dunno
<polyachka> but are you frustrated that you don’t get paid for your work?
<alsroot> nope, but will have to think about such things in nearest future
<polyachka> you mean in the future when you’ll run out of savings?
<alsroot> yup, and have to find a tmp job to earn some money
<polyachka> Do you have a dream about Sugar’s future?
<polyachka> what would you want to happen in the next 5 years?
<alsroot> hard to say, didn’t think about such things
<polyachka> where would you want to work ideally? long term?
<alsroot> at home 🙂
<polyachka> or would do you do volunteering forever?
<alsroot> I would if have money, then yup
<polyachka> work from home is nice, but don’t you miss people? real contact with humans?
<alsroot> well, did the same all time..
<polyachka> what do you mean?
<alsroot> mean I was all time in what I was doing.. so other things are just out of interest
<polyachka> are you working now as we speak?
<alsroot> at least trying 😉
<polyachka> sorry for interrupting 😉
<polyachka> I’m starting XO deployment at a shelter for girls here in Saigon on Wednesday, will tell you how it goes and about children’s favorite activities, so that you’ll get feedback! 🙂
<alsroot> heh, to be honest I’m working now in “core” mode, but any feedback is welcome
<alsroot> btw, there is an ongoing discussion about “Start new vs Resume” issue and people look for feedback http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/sugar-devel/2010-January/022161.html
<polyachka> thanks for being patient and answering all my questions! keep up good work! 🙂 I have to go now… Bye and Wish you a good programming year ! 🙂
