LinuxWorld OpenSolution Summit Panel
By tls on Feb 19, 2007
Last week, I traveled to LinuxWorld in New York to sit on a panel on Identity and Web Services Federation in a Linux Environment. As for the panel, the participation was light due to a) the weather in the NorthEast last week (see pic below) b) change to our conference room and c) we were the last session of the day. I'd estimate we had only 12 attendees in our session. As expected, many of the participants hadn't embarked on any Identity/Federation projects.
I did get the opportunity to speak with 3 journalists prior to the panel on Identity and Access Management at Sun. I also had a great Reuben sandwich at Junior's, just South and across the street from the Marriott Marquis.
Prior to the event, I was interviewed with Jack Loftus of SearchOpenSource.com.
The morning of the event, I also had the opportunity to speak with Amy Wohl of Amy Wohl's Opinions. We had a great discussion around Identity and Access Management at Sun as well as some of Sun's OpenSource initiatives in this area. I'm looking forward to her article. As her and other articles are posted, I'll try to create a Blog entry with my comments.
btw, travel to this event was not fun. My plane arrived in NYC at Noon in the middle of 40 knot gusts and blowing snow/ice. I was very happy to set down. Luckily, I was in the Marriott Marquis, same place as LinuxWorld. I did have a great view of Times Square. Checkout the pic below:
