Announcing OpenLaszlo at Web 2.0
Laszlo’s contribution to the Web 2.0 diaspora
At the O’Reilly Web 2.0 conference, we announced the open source release of the Laszlo platform, and launched the associated OpenLaszlo Project(which I set up, wrote and coded in substantial part with my own hands). This has created a stir in the developer community, and swampd Laszlo’s servers. Thank goodness we put our sites on the Akamai network on the day prior to the announcement.
Web 2.0 was a thoroughly stimulating event. For three days at the Nikko Hotel in San Francisco, luminaries of the Internet Boom pondered the future of information technology and society. It was nice to run into familiar faces, including a few former executives from ExciteAtHome whom I had not seen in a couple of years. I even had the good fortune to win one of twenty Apple iPod Minis Jerry Yang gave away in his conference-closing session on the past and future of Yahoo.
In a fitting conclusion to an eventful week, I’m going to ‘rip’ a few favorite music cd’s and relax with my nifty new iPod MP3 player.
