San Diego Preso

Speaking today at the Desktop Linux Summit in San Diego in the OpenOffice.org Regional Conference. Great audience (watched by Doc Searls in the front, Ashlee Vance from The Register over to the side), and I enjoyed presenting (here are my slides). It was also a pleasure to meet Ed Peterlin and interview him on stage - the interview is attached as my first Podcast, and if you can bear the poor audio quality you'll hear me call for NeoOffice/J to get equal billing over in the OpenOffice.org community.

Update: You can now hear my talk (and the other talks from the conference) by visiting Daniel's page at OpenOffice.org.

Comments:

I checked your RSS feed, it looks like you're pointing to the wrong file for your enclosure. You should be pointed directly to the media file (eg http://mediacast.sun.com/share/webmink/Recognising%20NeoOffice.wav), not the landing page (eg http://mediacast.sun.com/details.jsp?id=24)

First, amazed at the rapidity with which this was posted :) I just got back to SB myself! For those who are going through the wonderful presentation slides, the podcast excerpt is from the slide "Communities as Rivers" positing that each open source community is a community of communities. Simon also had quite an interesting parallel with this on a technological level noting how nodes in networks at some level represent networks in and of themselves (e.g. programs continuing to use sockets to collaborate w/each other even though they reside on the same host).

Some more intriguing background historical material on really how intertwined everything is and how it wound up the way it was, some community members wrote a brief history of Mac OS X OOo and NeoOffice (note: please don't deface the wiki!).

An mp3 version is available as well.

Hi, the name neooffice is unfortunate, why not just rename it to openoffice for osX. Might help the integration process...we need OO on osX!
