Although I am glad to not be traveling as much as I once was, one that I do miss is flying; not necessarily because I like small seats and bad food, but because I can get so much more done when I am forced to sit in one place, face straight ahead and focus on a single task at a time. It’s been over a month since my last personal blog post and at least a few weeks since I’ve posted anything to the MindTouch blog; I’ve finished the MindTouch post, and now I’m onto this post for my personal blog. Maybe I should fly more often.
The past Friday, I had the opportunity to participate in the Government 2.0 conference together with our CEO Aaron Fulkerson. This was my second government-and-technology conference, and I can’t even begin to express the new vibe that is in the air in Washington, and how energizing it is to be in the middle of what is, really, a revolution. It’s as if we had all been waiting in the wings with these new social applications for government, and the new mandates for transparency handed down by the Obama administration just opened the floodgates. The energy in the room is contagious, to say the least.
I am currently gearing up for Web 2.0 Expo this week, if you are going to be in attendance be sure to stop by the MindTouch booth, I’ll be working the floor Wednesday and Thursday.
