DayTripr and OpenID

I'm frantically adding demoable stuff to DayTripr in preparation for Demo Camp Dallas 1 next week. I just finished up a really half-baked integration with OpenID. OpenID is an important part of the "war against the portals"[1], but let's face it, no real user is going to log in via OpenID any time soon. But I couldn't help myself. The uncontrollable urge to implement is a hazard of being a technologist, I suppose. Next up: A Public Content Sharing proof of concept. Equally useless in the short term, equally fun to code. I am a weak person.

[1] Deportalization. Don't like that term, need a new one. Anybody remember Jefferson's Mosquito Fleet from American History class? Never mind, mustn't be negative.

Demo Camp Dallas 1 : Geek Bread and Circus

Well, just leaned another friend is thinking of moving to Portland. The exodus from Dallas must be stopped, the restive geeks need their bread and circus:


Also, I need a deadline to get me motivated. We need people to help organize, demo, and just show up. It's looking like Feb 15th out in Southlake at Sabre labs. Probably a fairly small group this go-round (targeting 30), but some interesting people should be there.

Thanks to Kevin Marvin and the group of geeks he got together at the Bar Belmont for inspiring this madness. And sorry, Giovanni, for turning my email to you into a blog posting, I swear it wasn't a form letter.
