I will be partially attending OSCON 2008 in Portland, next week. If you are around and want to say hi feel free to holler or message or leave a comment here. This is my first time to OSCON and I have heard great things about it and i’m looking forward to the state of onion. Microsoft is one of the Diamond sponsors -  Sam Ramji is talking about Open Source Heros and John Lam is delving in to IronRuby. This will be an oppurtunity for us at HealthVault to evaluate and see how we can move the state of art of our Java, Ruby and PHP libraries by interacting with the opensource community and discover possible way to enhance our open-ness.
