Best Open Source Business Presentation Ever? Is Software Comoditization Real?

I am just starting to recover from the last two weeks of EclipseCon, Evans Developer Relations Conference and my four month old daughter's first cold. Lot's of emails to catch up on, but at least I haven't suffered a catastrophic laptop failure like Ian had to put up with last week!

Just in case you otherwise missed it, one of the most talked about sessions at EclipseCon this year was Brent Williams talk on Open Source Business Models. Brent also spoke at the members meeting earlier in the week, and his talks were picked up by a number of industry bloggers like Walli, Asay, Tiemann, and Orcmid. Heck, it was even slash dotted. I won't even attempt to summarize Brent's points, you need to see the slides yourself.

Eclipse Ladies vs Netbeans Girls -- Wayne only tells half the story...

I hope my wife, who is at home with our 4 month old, isn't reading my blog today, but here is a shot of the Eclipse Ladies photo-shoot.

Sometimes ya just gotta take one for the team.

Lunar Eclipse March 3rd -- How Appropriate!

Aggregated newsfeeds sometimes pick up some funny things. Here's one that's pretty cool -- there is a Lunar Eclipse on March 3rd, just a day before the team decends onsite to start prepping for EclipseCon.

See you at the show!
