Things I Like..

Applied XML Developer Conference

I got up at 4 AM today, took care of some odds and ends on the Syndic8 server, got dressed, and hopped in my car for a quick (80+ MPH) Southbound dash on I5, then east along the Columbia River Gorge and up into the mountains. The early morning view of the river was spectacular, the road had plenty of twists and turns, and I was half-tempted to bag the conference and keep on driving!

I am now at the Applied XML Developer’s Conference, staying at the Skamania Lodge. I have to come back here as a tourist some time really soon.

I missed Tim Bray’s talk. I heard he bashed Microsoft 10 ways to Sunday; that’s what speakers from Sun are supposed to do, of course.

My plan is to blog each talk as a separate posting today and tomorrow.
