Miguel de Icaza goes to the middle east.

“Miguel de Icaza”:http://primates.ximian.com/~miguel/, apparently-never-sleeps mastermind behind “Gnome”:http://gnome.org/ and “Mono”:http://go-mono.com/, “went to Turkey and Lebanon”:http://primates.ximian.com/~miguel/archive/2005/Mar-08.html.

Yeah, _that_ Lebanon. During the protests. And since Miguel is the sort of person who seems to be at home in any situation, he went and saw the protests. And talked to people. And took pictures.

There’s no deep analysis here, he just relates what the people he talked to told him. And, as encounters with people most often seem to be, it’s interesting.
