this is not a traditional conference; all attendees are expected to contribute in the brainstorm and workshop format and take advantage of the CIO panels.

I’m at the Olliance Open Source ThinkTank in Napa Valley from February 7-9. The guest list is a long list of C’s (CEO, CIO, CTO, etc) from predominately open source software companies, but proprietary software companies are well represented as well. I just skimmed the guest list. It’s a veritable who’s who of open source. The event is intended to achieve two goals: give open source company executives access to CIOs through a series of panels. And provide a venue and medium for open source entrepreneurs and executives to brainstorm about key issues that effect our businesses and the industry as a whole. Rather than spamming the MindTouch blog I’ll likely post a couple times during the event to my personal blog at O b (LOG N ).
