Bay Area Frontier User's Group meets tomorrow in San Francisco at 7PM. Some people have asked if I will be there, and I think it's best that I not be there. It's a user's group, and I'm the vendor. I think it's important for it to get going, and then if you want to invite me to come, I will happily attend. I think it's great that there's a Bay Area group forming!

Here's a open proposal for an Linux-style open source project. The components would be an HTTP client-server, a simple XML parser, and a routing system that handles plug-ins. (Build it into Apache?)
The format could be our XML-RPC or one that's bridgeable to it. Here's a place where the Linux open source community could shine and lead the rest of the industry in a very visible way. Next step, port to BeOS, Solaris, Mac OS, Windows, the Java VM. Let's end the OS wars, build bridges between environments and across OSes.
