I'll be in Colorado this week. Mostly in Boulder, but likely down to Colorado Springs for a quick stop.
Drop me a note if you are a reader of my blog and would like to get together for a face-2-face chat!
Zooomr is offering 12 months of FREE Zooomr Pro account access to Bloggers. This FREE upgrade includes 4GB of photo uploads each month. Plenty for me. Thanks, Zooomr!
All you have to do is follow these instructions. I like that Zooomr support OpenID authentication and that they are implementing the Flickr API for uploading photographs to their site. And, that they are giving me some FREE photo storage. Very cool.
Here's my first photo (required to get the FREE account):
Best of luck to the Zooomr folks.
Brent C. Williams, an independent Equity Research Analyst, gave a quick-paced ride through some Open Source Business Models and key activities from 2006 at EclipseCon 2007.
Some takeaways about a couple of big activities in 2006:
Brent's Prediction: If Microsoft sues anybody for patent infringement in 2007, that there will be an Open Source community response such that each of Microsoft's existing software patents would receive prior-art petitions filed against them with the patent office (and 70% of such petitions are accepted by the Patent office).
What do investors care about for 2007?
I'm at EclipseCon 2007 this week, in sunny Santa Clara, CA. I'm very much looking forward to the event. Lots of great sessions lined up and this year's conference looks to be bigger than ever.
If you'd like to chat/meet, please drop me an email.
