Identity Road Show Today in NYC

Usually not one who likes to read blogs and wade through "what I am doing now" entries (please, my life is fairly mundane, no need to bore the world with it), but just wanted to put in a quick note.

On the bus now (horrible hour of 6:30 AM) to join the Sun Identity Roadshow in our New York City offices. Lots of customers, partners, and Sun Identity folks. Heading in early for a "NYC power breakfast (I'm still stuck in the 80's) with Mark Dixon. He is one of our troupers and is speaking at all of the roadshows. Catch him if you can.

So how far have we come with technology? Here is my nugget for the morning. Surprisingly, Mark's contact information was a little dated on my laptop here on the bus, so I VPN'd into Sun's directory and downloaded his contact info in a VCF file. Then I remembered Thunderbird does not have the ability to bring that into my contact database (shame on Thunderbird - for open source, open formats should be a given. Great product, but missed an easy feature).

However, a little Googling on the net turns up an extension that give Thunderbird that capability. And I am downloading it from Germany. On a moving bus. Going through the Lincoln tunnel. Under the Hudson River and getting nearly 1 mbps). Like how cool is that. Oh, and it works. Will blog later on the road show.
