Dr. Dobb's Architecture & Design World 2008, LinuxWorld 2008, Web 2.0 NY Best Practices

I just got back from Dr. Dobb’s Architecture & Design World 2008, where I was speaking on the future of mashups. This year’s conference was cool, with many attendees wearing shorts and hanging out in Chicago at night. The event is much smaller than mega events, such as Oracle World, but you can see the geeks here and there. Speaking of Oracle World–when it comes to town, attendees are flooding San Francisco downtown like a hurricane and you feel like a herring within 15-block radius from Moscone.

During Dr. Dobbs, I went with a couple of local friends of mine to Kingston Mines blues bar. We met a couple of cool folks, chatted about history of blues and its South-East roots. Next day in the speaker’s room I figured out that these two folks where fellow speakers–Sonya Lowry of the National Optical Astronomy Observatory and Michael Rosen, CTO of Wilton Consulting Group. The world is flat (Sonya, no offense:), the world is small…

Last, but not least, I wanted to say thanks to Amber Ankerholz, Conference Manager for making the conference a blast.

To close this post, I wanted to share with you my speaking schedule for next week–I would love to meet you face-to-face, if you are attending one of the following events:
