Put up some more schedule bits in the wiki. General philosophy for the weekend (as I propose it) is (to quote the wiki):

The emphasis this year will be even more focused on BOFs and hacking. Day 1 will be dedicated to speed talks and BOFs that might yield hacking on Day 2 and Day 3. Day 2, for those not hacking, will focus on BOFs for things like marketing, QA, and ISVs, which are generally more policy-oriented than hacking-oriented (not that the QA guys can’t hack :)
On the last day, we’ll spill over from the first couple days, and at the end of the day, review the results of the hacking and BOFing in the closing.

Hopefully that’ll work well; we’ll see.

This job is forcing me to refine and restate some assumptions I’ve built up over the last four years. Hopefully I’ll get those out into print at some point as a guide for anyone else who slips out of our little free software world and back into the real world.

New, interesting-looking toy of the day: synchroedit, a sort of yarr-like collaborative web text-entry thingy, that will eventually be open source and integrated into wikiwyg and kwiki.
