Getting off the Frontier flight last night in Terminal A, I found Colorado much as I left it last Thursday: awash in driving snow and cold, if not frigid, temps. While I very much enjoy snow in the abstract, I’m dramatically less fond of it on the road, particularly at one in the morning 25 miles from home. But lest it seem like all I do is complain, let me say that I had an outstanding and productive visit to San Francisco (I’ve recently been told that referring to the city as ‘San Fran’ is mildly insulting). Apart from some excellent sessions on OSBC Day 2, I had the pleasure of seeing or meeting folks such as Andy Astor, Bill Vass, Jason Matusow, Matt Filios, and Tim Bray (more on that chat later, perhaps).
In other news, my new colleague linked to the Gillmor Daily show that I was a guest on yesterday. Steve, Dan Farber and I discuss very little vis a vis OSBC, but get into topics like Google, grid/utility computing, SaaS, scalability, and more. For the record, that’s not how I sound in person 😉
You didn’t hear from me yesterday because I was putting the final touches on the Oracle JBoss/Sleepycat/Zend Q&A which I’ll post right after I’m done here, but more to come this week.
