Well, I really really enjoyed going to RSA. As I foresaw, more than the event itself I really appreciated the chance of meeting with very smart people: the Concordia and the OSIS events were truly exceptional in this sense. Axel captured some of that spirit here. Just to mention a few notable encounters:
and I'm failing to mention quite a lot of people, both because I am horrible with names and because in some case I had very little chance to talk.
I would not be honest if I would not mention two things that really made me super happy: the many praises for the book and for the Channel9 video on WS-Trust. It's true that I am very recognizable (hey, that's got to be the euphemism of the quarter), but I really really didn't expect people to stop me at sessions or in the aisles to tell me nice things... the biggest satisfaction came when a number of identirati told Caleb and me that they are glad we wrote the book, and that very often they answer to identity questions by referencing parts of the text. Needless to say, those identirati work on non-Microsoft platforms... this is fantastic validation that we obtained one of the goals we had in mind for the book.
I can only hope that Catalyst will be in the same style!
