2007 China Software Innovation Summit

I just got back from a few days in Beijing at the 2007 China Software Innovation Summit & Open Source Forum.

Open Source and Open Standards expert Stephen Walli invited me to present OpenSolaris and talk about our community building efforts. I'm always happy to talk about the OpenSolaris community, so I was honored to participate. It was great meeting some of the other speakers -- Mike Olson, former CEO of SleepyCat Software; Nat Torkington of O'Reilly Radar and Program Chair of OSCON; Christophe Bisciglia, senior engineer at Google, Taiwen Jiang, lead developer on the XOOPS project, Mikko Puhakka, founder of Open Tuesday in Finland; and Calvin Sun, software development manager at MySQL.

In fact, one of the best things about this conference is that I met a great deal of new people from a variety of countries, and I have a stack of business cards 3/4 of an inch thick. There were many students and professors there as well as government officials and developers from around China. The energy level was very high, and it by far the most interesting trip to China and certainly the most valuable from an Open Source learning perspective. Many exciting things are taking place in China, and it will be fascinating to participate in the growth of so many new Open Source communities. I hope to go back soon and keep going back.

My flicker set here. And Stephen's flickr set here. He even has some shots of me all dressed up on stage. Jing Jing, thank you for translating my slides. Amy, thanks for the advice, and I promise to install the Ubuntu DVD. :) And thank you, Stephen, for having me along. You ran a flawless forum.

It was so nice to see you in Japan Jim! I'm glad you were at the conference in China to represent Sun.
