XTech 2007, and visiting London
Some themes/highlights I'm looking forward to from the schedule:
- Aaron Straup Cope (Yahoo/Flickr) and Håkon Wium Lie (Opera) are both talking about paper and printing and the web.
- Blaine Cook (Obvious/Twitter) and Kellan Elliott-McCrea (Yahoo/Flickr) are talking about Jabber (IM) and social software for robots.
- I'm interested to see if Simon Willison can keep up his momentum on OpenID (I'm a skeptic).
- It will be good to catch up with Steve Coast and talk about OpenStreetMap
- Matt Biddulph is (sadly) talking about his work in Second Life but hopefully also about his recent shift to working full-time on Dopplr too.
At some point I'm going to stop pretending that I'll write this blog with any regularity. In the meantime, if you're wondering what I'm up to you should know that life in San Francisco is great and that Stamen are treating me very well... If you want to know more you'll just have to grab me face to face, or at least wait for my current project to launch by which point I might find time to breathe. We'll see!
