I'm hopping on a plane shortly for OSCON 2006 in Portland. Hopefully it's cooler up a there!
As Tim noted last week, I'll be participating in the Executive Briefing Session. I'm really looking forward to the day, since there are some interesting topics up for discussion and I'm not really sure where it's going to head.
I kick off the day with a conversation with Chris DiBona from Google, Jeremy Zawodny from Yahoo!, and Jim Buckmaster from Craigslist, exploring how they use open source in their companies, and how web 2.0 applications harness their users at levels far above the code. I'll also do my best to put them in the hot seat about how they give back to open source.
I'll be at the conference until late Thursday afternoon. If you're there too, drop me a note or track me down. I'll be hanging out with other Yahoo's and at the booth now and then.

Hah! We're setting all-time heat records up here... welcome!
Oregon....what a fine state! I'm not at OSCON but hope to see you at SES.
Indeed. See you there.
Google, Yahoo, and Craigslist ... Web 2.0? Heh. Now Yahoo has bought some Web 2.0 companies, but that's about as close as any of those three get.
Temps have dropped a good 10 degrees today, which still makes it hotter than we like up here. Good news? The Convention Center A/C is working. Better news (if you're into that sort of thing), you'll still be here for the Oregon Brew Fest.
5 of the 9 speakers wear glasses.
WELL TODAY IN SOQUEL CALIFORNIA IT HAS BEEN 105 IN THE SHADE...BUT TODAY IT'S BEEN COOLER
