Next week it’s the fifteenth annual O’Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON) in Portland, OR.
Although I won’t be able to make it in person this year, the keynotes from OSCON will be livestreamed next Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (July 24th, 25th, and 26th). Check out the schedule remembering these are pacific time. Hopefully I can catch at least some of these around lunch time on the east coast – though I believe they’ll be available after the fact as well.
Though they’ll all be interesting, I’m especially hoping to see:
- Mark Shuttleworth of Canonical, scheduled for 9:55am – 10:10am (Pacific) on Wednesday
- Laura Weidman Powers of CODE2040 on “Diversity in the Innovation Economy: Why It Matters And What You Can Do About It” – scheduled for 9:05-9:20am (Pacific) on Thursday
- Robert “r0ml” Lefkowitz on “Distilling Distinction” – scheduled for 9:25-9:40am (Pacific) on Friday the 26th. r0ml’s talks were always among my favorites at OSCON – check out one of his talks from 2008 for a sense of his inimitable style.
