Frankfurt Verticals · This week I saw quite a bit of Frank­furt and for some rea­son all the in­ter­est­ing pic­tures were of tall things ...
 
That License Thing · CNET says Jonathan says CDDL. Slash­dot says CRN says GPL. Who ya gonna be­lieve? (This is fun!)
 
Making Presos · When I do talks for Sun events and where the ma­te­ri­al needs to be re-usable, I al­ways use the NeoOf­fice ver­sion of OpenOf­fice.org, be­cause then I can give peo­ple ODF (or PPT, or PDF, or just about any­thing else you can imag­ine). When I’m do­ing an outward-facing pre­sen­ta­tion and ei­ther I re­al­ly re­al­ly care about try­ing to move the nee­dle with the au­di­ence, or I have my back to the wall time-wise, I use Keynote. It’s been a few busy travel-packed week­s, and I had speech­es to make at JAX.de and the In­ter­na­tion­al PHP Con­fer­ence, both au­di­ences im­por­tan­t, I thought, so they got Keynote pre­sen­ta­tion­s. Any­how, my re­al pur­pose here is just to say that the Keynote au­thor­ing in­ter­face is just to­tal­ly ex­cel­len­t, amaz­ing­ly good; and I speak as a pret­ty ex­pert us­er of both Pow­erPoint and OpenOf­fice.org. For my mon­ey, maybe the best app Ap­ple ship­s.
