I’m attending OSCON 2006 in Portland on Monday July 24 – Thursday July 27.  I’m heading out Thursday afternoon to speak at BlogHer.

Feel free to contact me if you want to meet, do lunch, or something.  I will also hang out with the Port25 guys at some point while i’m down there.

I’m attending OSCON to learn more about the ins and outs of Open Source Software.  So, i’ve signed up to take the Tutorials on Monday and Tuesday.  I tried to take more of a OSS Management track with my choices.
