UPDATE: And just as I went to hit post – the email came that the conference is canceled. Oh well. I’m posting anyway because this topic isn’t going away.
These are further reading/ exploration resources to go along with a talk that is supposed to happen at Online Northwest tomorrow. If I sound less than confident, it is because this is the view from my front door.
I live a 10 minute walk from the conference venue, and this is western Oregon, and we don’t really do snow.
I hope my doubts are misplaced, because this is routinely one of my favorite conferences and even though I am being denied the opportunity to hear some good friends speak by poor scheduling luck, I was really looking forward to the keynote. I saw on the twitter that Andromeda won’t be able to get here, though, so things are not looking up.
In the interest of optimism, though, here’s the stuff behind this talk:
