FWIW, Maddog gave a keynote during the 3rd GUADEC (Seville 2002).
Alright. I wasn't aware of that.
As a side note, I can not recall if that what the time when he tried to
convince people to adopt a new logo or a mascot. His rationale was the
foot is not good for marketing: nobody can hug a foot, you can not name
it, a foot is not neutral everywhere (he said a foot can be extremely
insulting in Thailand), etc.
Well, I see how that can upset some people in GNOME but I don't see it
as an argument not to invite a great speaker like he is. Also, he was a
KDE user and now AFAIK he uses GNOME.
