Simon Phipps Interview Opensource Strategy at CommunityOne2008

I interviewed Simon Phipps...what an amazing guy, not only is he brilliant but he is funny,warm and an awesome photographer! I spoke with him today for a couple of hours..he not only interviewed with me but taught me a lesson in imovie and quicktime. The interview I did is very organic and will here me giggling at the end. I tried to edit it out but my skills are lacking in that area. I tried the imovie Simon, but I don't know what happened there was no sound so I went with what I had. It's still awesome content. Check out what Simon discusses on Opensource strategy minus my laughing at the end. Enjoy! The launch may be over but it's only the beginning..There is much more to come! Keep checking in

The Big Day!!

Happy Cinco De Mayo!!! It is officially here!  I am getting excited for the day and can't wait to capture it!! At the OpenSolaris Developer Summit this weekend ..... it was on!! There was a lot of collaboration! The Sun and Non-Sun community came together and had a great time. They hung out, watched sessions gave feedback and educated one another on OpenSolaris and had some tasty beverages as well on Saturday night. I missed that night but heard it was fun. It was a very informative event for me as a newbie to the community and a great opportunity to see the community as a whole! Rather than just over the blogsphere. The venue was in the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. Everyone really enjoyed the outdoors of the event. Jesse Silver put together an awesome summit and planned all the technical sessions with great timing. This was said to me by several members of the community!!You Rock Jesse..Or should I say ARRIBA...with a shot of tequila ;) It is after all Cinco de Mayo or another blogger said, "Cinco de OpenSolaris!".  Hope to see you all at CommunityOne today and at the after party too!!! Below is a video of a couple community members.

At the Summit!

At the OpenSolaris Developer Summit in Santa Cruz!!  Listening to some very cool stuff!!  I am planning on capturing some good videos today with some of the Community Members.  I will be traveling to SF later today and will post the videos for all to view!!!  Only ONE more day for the Big day at CommunityOne.  There are a log of great points that Ben Rockwood and Dan Roberts have made!!
