BOSS, the Business of Open Source Software conference, will be held on January 26th, 2003. It will be part of a larger event called the Open Source Weekend. There will soon be a URL for that.

BOSS now has a channel on irc.freenode.net: #osw.

The BOSS page has been updated with a little info about what to expect in the coming BOSS.

On a completely different subject, does anyone know why advogato's server often takes so long to respond or (sometimes) times out altogether?

All of the below is obviously very out-of-date.
I will bring it in sync with the rest of spacetime very soon.

IBM has agreed to sponsor BOSS, and to join the panel. That's great news -- it should increase again the event's visibility, and allow us to attract still more mainstream attention.

Now if only that other large corporation -- let's call them "Sybil" -- would come on side. We shall see. Stay tuned.

The Business of Open Source Software conference (BOSS) will take place on Sunday, November 25 at the auditorium of the Ottawa Public Library, Main Branch, from 1:00PM to 4:00PM.

The Business of Open Source Software conference (BOSS) proceeds apace. I just added a lot of relevant information to the project page.

The team members organizing The Business of Open Source Software symposium may now affiliate themselves with the project BOSS.

Stay tuned for more.

It's Official-- dyork is becoming a Canadian. He may already be one. Curling! Holy Jazes, Dan! I've been a Canadian all my life, and I have yet to even step into a curling rink. This is like The Body Snatchers or something. What's next? ``zed''? Decent beer? Road hockey? Responsible Government?

Welcome, Dan. We're a little odd, but we make our own fun ;)
