Sellsing Out · This Oc­to­ber I’ll be at­tend­ing and speak­ing at a con­fer­ence that ev­ery­one calls “The Sells Thing” be­cause it’s run by Chris Sells. Hm­m, on the web page the big let­ters at the top say Ap­plied XML Devel­op­ers Con­fer­ence 5 but in the brows­er ti­tle bar it says Web Ser­vices DevCon; 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.
