In a few hours, I'm on a plane up to Portland for this year's Open Source Convention. I'm giving a talk on Thursday, entitled "Don't Drop the SOAP: Why Web Services Require Complexity". It's a subject I feel pretty strongly about, and I have all my thoughts and notes together.
What I don't have is my presentation/slides done. This is the worst-prepared I've ever been for a talk. My year has been hell, and on top of it I've had some health-related problems the last few months that have taken more out of me than I've been willing to admit. I have no doubt that I will have my shit together by the time I sign-in tomorrow evening. But I'd feel a whole lot better if the shit were already together.
Anyway, I'll see as many of you as can make it.
