Many thanks for sharing your thoughts and feelings!
I am quite young, therefore my first congress only was 26C3…
You were walking around in suits all the time. You also were the first guy in a suit I ever saw who was also funny and somehow embedded in the crowd — where everybody else had those Hacker-Shirts. Changed my teenager-view on the world alot: “It does not matter what you wear as long as you care for the others” worked both ways: also if its a suit on a hackerconference :) (I thought this was kind of forbidden there).
… I think there are many people missing You at the congresses for your work, your warm words and humor cheering the crowd between talks.
I am one of them. Please come back and be part of the Congress 2016 ;(
