Next Week: Heading to Portland

As you might imagine, next week I'll be visiting fabulous Portland, Or. for the O'Reilly Open Source Convention. I'll be giving a talk there about our open source efforts with Leslie. Leslie is the person on my team who runs the Summer of Code for Google. I'll also be presenting the Google/O'Reilly Open Source Awards with Nat Torkington on Tuesday Night.

Finally, I'll be a panelist in the "Who Gets to Decide what Open Source Means?" session. Which should be fun. Note this is not a violation of my no-panels policy due to the presence of other activities :-)

I've intentionally left some time in my schedule to visit some talks, so that's unusual. I'm really looking forward to it, actually. Hope to see you there!

"Finally, I'll be a panelist"

Thats great and all but...what about the Hammer? Has he been cast out of the tech limelight already? "Can't touch this!"

Its pretty awesome all the open source work Google actually does. I have met a lot of people who say "What has Google done for open source?".

A lot of these people tend to forget about the summer of code and I wished Google publicized a little more as to the things it does help.
