Infrequently Noted

Alex Russell on browsers, standards, and the process of progress.


So I've been in Portland for 2 days now, attending a FLOSS "summit" thinger for many of the various Open Source foundations that are working to help hackers keep their sanity by doing the dirty work that committers don't want to. The conversations have been interesting, informative, and eye-opening. I feel amazingly lucky to have been invited.

The main OSCON stuff starts tomorrow, and I'm still hacking away at the examples to go with my tutorial on Tuesday. Don't even ask about Friday's talk. Ugg. But I'm still terribly excited. A lot of people are going to be showing off some amazingly neat apps built on Dojo this week, and while I won't steal any of their thunder, I can vouch for the kick-ass-ness of these things.

Frankly, I'm shocked at what people are doing w/ the platform, esp given that we don't have coherent docs. More on that later.
