My notes from the EntConnect 2012 conference
In case you were unable to attend the EntConnect 2012 conference out in Denver, CO last weekend, I have published my notes.
Actually, I have decided to withdraw from the conference. I still think it is an interesting conference and provides a great reunion opportunity for former Midnight Engineering readers (yes, Bill actually attended portions of the conference), but other than that reunion aspect, the conference is growing rather long in the tooth (hey, it's been 21 conferences now since the first ME SKI '92 in 1992) and not really attracting much in the way of new blood, and I "did the math" and decided that although the conference still delivers value beyond its financial cost, the value simply isn't enough to justify the investment of my time. Put another way, the conference is more of a "blue pill" crowd and I need to associate more more hard-core "red pill" types (see the "Red pill and blue pill" Wikipedia article.) I personally need to be moving at "Internet Time" times 2 or more and I just wasn't feeling that the conference was helping me out on that score.
In particular, I need to focus more attention on my infamous software agent project which seems to be actually coming to fruition. More on that later, although running, downloadable code can be found here.
