This is my quick summary of Gnomedex 4 day #1.
This morning started with a discussion on "The Future of Security" led by Chris DiBona. Much of it was focused on how less technical users are having trouble with security, what Microsoft is and could be doing about it, and so on. It's clear that better technology is a going to be a big part of the future of security, but there are policy and social issues to deal with too.
The second session was about Blogging Strategy (lead by Adam Kalsey) and was kind of all over the map--but in a good way. We talked about how to deal with information overload, what new users need to discover new and interesting feeds, audio blogging, podcasting, video blogs and lots more. It's pretty clear that this stuff is just starting to take off.
A quick show of hands during the second session revealed that there are tons of bloggers here--not that anyone is really surprised by this.
We just got back lunch and Woz is going to be speaking shortly. So I'll try to post about the second half of the day later today.
