Summertime and the livin’ is easy
June 23rd, 2008 · 4 Comments
Summertime started on saturday and it starts with a few speaking engagements, followed by a nice cool 4 weeks vacations in France!
Tuesday June 24th, 11:30-12:15 PST, Voice Peering Forum Summer 2008 in San Francisco
With Charlene Li (Forrester), David Jones (Friendster), Anil Dharni (hi5), and John McCrea (Plaxo… or should I say Comcast?-), we’re doing a panel about federating social networks. I really look forward to this one: I have not met Charlene yet and liked her Future of Social Networks GSP West 2008 presentation very much. Only issue with this panel: my surf buddy Stephane Teral is in a panel at the same time and I really wanted to see him wearing a not wet suit:-)
Wednesday June 25th, 18:15-18:35 Paris time, Electronic Business Group General Assembly in Paris
With Jeff Clavier, Henri Moissinac and Philippe Cailloux we do a panel over video conference from Palo Alto, talking about the next steps in web innovation. You can send us questions using this Google Spreadsheet form. We’re talking just before the french prime minister: I hope we will keep the audience awake:-)
Friday June 27th I fly to France for 2 months.
This BarCamp organized by my friends Christophe Ducamp and Philippe Jeudy should be a good opportunity to chat with developers about OpenSocial, OpenID, other APIs and whatever the developers who come want to talk about. Philippe wrote a nice summary about why he organized the event.
Monday June 30th at 6 pm, OpenSocial and App Engine talk at FZI in Karlsruhe. Thanks To Dr. Stefan Tai to organize this one.
Wednesday July 2nd, Paris, 2 sessions at the Octo IT University conference:
My friends at Octo who organize this event are co-founders and long time sponsors of our open source group in Paris OSSGTP. I’m impressed by the lineup of speakers they gathered: Neil Armstrong, Michel Serres and Bjarne Stroustrup! I need to find my old copy of “Design and Evolution of C++” to ask Bjarne for an autograph. Thanks to Octo and Marc-Antoine Guarrigue for inviting me.
After that I have a much needed one month break in France.
Then I’ll be working in the Paris office from august 4 to august 22: if you are based in Europe and want to meet about OpenSocial or Google APIs, don’t hesitate to contact me. For now all I have planned is:
August 11th, talk about GWT at the Cologne JUG.
I hope to meet many developers during that trip to Europe. Enjoy the summer!
One of these mornings
You’re going to rise up singing
Then you’ll spread your wings
And you’ll take to the sky
