To Atlanta

Posted by Jim Jagielski on Wednesday, April 30. 2008 in Open Source

I've been asked to speak at the CDC next Monday regarding Open Source. It will be 2 sessions, with a "lunch and learn" break in between. I haven't been to Atlanta since ApacheCon US 2007, so it will be a nice opportunity to get back down there, even if only for a day.

As a true geek fanboy, with the Iron Man movie coming out so soon, this story about a "super transistor" has quite a synchronicity factor, doncha think?

Been quite busy lately. $Dayjob is getting even more ramped up, somewhat due to the buzz created from the merger/acquisition but also simply because open source in IT is expanding like a fiend in and of itself and Covalent/SpringSource is a known leader in that area. There was, of course, ApacheCon EU 2008 which was a total success IMO, but also a whirlwind event for me. Within the ASF there is a lot going on as well, both regarding the various projects but also administratively as well. On the personal side, there also seems a rush in people contacting me to do some keynotes, some outreach as well as join some advisory teams. Factor in just the busyness with also having a social life and a family (and their social life - as the boys get more involved, Mom and Dad get quite busy *grin*) and I'm likely busier now than ever. And I'm loving it.

Amsterdam and ApacheCon EU 2008

If you follow PlanetApache, the fashionable thing to be doing now is talking about ApacheCon EU 2008, either regarding one's preparations on getting there, what you will be doing while there or comments regarding the ongoing, internal discussions regarding ApacheCon in general.... think I'll jump right on in! For me, the hardest part about getting prepared is syncing my MacBook and MacPro. I use my MacBook pretty much only when traveling, and do everything else on my MacPro. So when it's time to be away for awhile, I need to rsync a bunch of stuff. And this takes time. A loooooonnnnnnngggggg time. I'm sure there are easier ways to do this, but I do it so infrequently that I deal with the pain and move on. Then of course there is the actual event of traveling itself. As I've previously blogged about, this is very much a non-productive time for me. So I see travel time pretty much as wasted time, and, to be honest, when things are busy, I can't waste any of it. So even though I try, I know that I'm falling behind. Combine this with the facts that (1) traveling is no longer fun or easy and (2) I get quite anxious flying, especially large distances, that "getting there" is the worse part about "being there." Once at Amsterdam, I'm looking forward to the week. As with most people, I'll be staying at the Moevenpick, Amsterdam City Centre. Look for me. In addition to my 2 talks, I'm going to be attending several sessions (reminder to self: sign up to be session chair!) and will be hanging out at the Covalent/SpringSource booth when I can. I'm sure I owe you a beer!

SIP softphone

When I updated to Leopard 10.5.2, X-Lite no longer worked, so I needed to purchase eyeBeam. Anyway, the latest version of eyeBeam is out: So is another build of X-Lite, which may, or may not, work with 10.5.2.
