Busy Week at OSCON

As Scott Kveton beat me to blogging about, grr power outages, last evening I won a Google-O'Reilly Open Source award along with Karl Fogel, Pamela Jones, Aaron Leventhal, and Paul Vixie. The award I won was for Best Strategist which refers to the work I've done over this past year at VeriSign within the wider OpenID community. Am certainly really honored to have been recognized though am guessing I now need to work on raising my hacker geek cred again. :P

In other news, Simon Willison and I gave a three-hour OpenID Bootcamp tutorial yesterday morning at OSCON. Slides can be found up at http://www.slideshare.net/daveman692/openid-bootcamp-tutorial/. In the afternoon, Simon and I then joined Tim O'Reilly as a part of the Radar Executive Briefing and discussed OpenID with him, ending with a really great statement from Tim as he sees OpenID as one of the technologies to really pay attention to this year.

So very long but exciting day and already back to OSCON for more session today!
