I’m sitting here at home, insanely envious of all the lucky and smart people who are at this very moment congregating at the Emerging Technology Conference. Drat!
UPDATE: Significant things have happened already:
- Six Apart, the makers of Movable Type, have announced a new turnkey weblog service called TypePad, the acquisition of some venture financing, and the hiring of my Close Personal Friend™ Anil Dash as Vice President of Business Development.
- Mitch Kapor‘s Open Software Applications Foundation released the 0.1 Alpha of Chandler, their open source PIM.
Cory Doctorow over at BoingBoing is doing a great job of blogging from the conference. I’ll be reading his notes and so should you.
