Sellsing Out · This October I’ll be attending and speaking at <a href='http://www.sellsbrothers.com/conference/'>a conference</a> that everyone calls “The Sells Thing” because it’s run by <a href='http://www.sellsbrothers.com/'>Chris Sells</a>. Hmm, on the web page the big letters at the top say <i>Applied XML Developers Conference 5</i> but in the browser title bar it says <i>Web Services DevCon</i>; I’m fine with “Sells Thing.” The reason I accepted Chris’ invitation is that this conference has historically been regarded as Microsoft territory and is populated by a whole universe of people who do markup-related stuff for a living that I know nothing about, so giving a speech is just the excuse, I’m really going there as a tourist. I’m supposed to talk about the usual blogging&syndication stuff, but I suspect they’ll be OK if I wander afield into some general-purpose XML ranting.
