Next week is going to be a busy one. From Sunday for a week and a half I'll be visiting San Francisco. The first week is all but consumed with things relating to identity and data portability, which I'll be attending:
- The newly-enlarged OpenID Foundation board will be having its first face-to-face meeting.
- The OpenID Foundation is organising an "Open House" meeting where everyone in the community is invited to come along and discuss with the board how best to promote OpenID and what directions the community would like the Foundation to head. This event is part of the first day of IIW, and will be at about 1:30pm on May 12th at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View.
- May 12th through 14th is another Internet Identity Workshop in Mountain View. I'm looking forward to catching up on what everyone's working on and having some more valuable discussion about problems facing online identity in general and OpenID specifically.
- On Thursday 15th, also at the Computer History Museum, is the Data Sharing Summit which I only found out about at the last minute but I will be attending.
