There's now a wiki for the open source conference in Portland next week. Still skeletal, but already lots of stuff about people, schedules, places to go in Portland. If you're going to OScon (or just want to check out how wikis work), go add your bits to the page. Just scroll down till you find the edit button on any page, and you're in the driver's seat. I love the way the net is making it easier and easier for anyone to start a party, and then for others to join in to make it a good one. (My hat's off to whomever started this wiki.)

Tim's blog, the O'Reilly Radar, "watches the alpha geeks" to determine emerging technology trends, and serves as a platform for advocacy about issues of importance to the technical community.
