Follow me at Catalyst

I’ll be at the Catalyst conference next week, looking to share and learn. I expect Catalyst to be the usual source of inspiration, news and ideas. And I look forward to meeting up with fellow identirati like Ian, Mark and of course, the good folks from Burton.

Unfortunately, a quirk of timing means that a long awaited upgrade of the Oracle blogs system is also taking place next week, freezing all of our blogs. Those that follow my blog know that the current system leaves something to be desired in terms of features and stability. And the commenting system was totally unhelpful in enabling any kind of conversation with my readers. While I welcome the upgrade, I hate the fact that I won’t be able to post during the week.

I will post some wrap-up posts the week after Catalyst, summarizing my experiences and thoughts. But if you are really interested in keeping up with my Catalyst experience, there is an option. I use Twitter, that quirky micro-blogging platform that is all the rage, fairly regularly. And I plan on posting fairly regularly from San Diego. To make things easier, I will be prefacing all my Catalyst related postings with “BurtonCatalyst08:” (unless Burton has something else going). So If you are on Twitter, you can choose to follow me and keep up with the going-ons. If you don’t want to sign up for yet another social whatever, then you can subscribe to an RSS feed of my twitter postings here.

If you plan on being at Catalyst and want to meet up, either email me or join us at the Oracle Hospitality Suite on the evening of June 25th (Wednesday). I’ll be around. And the following sessions might be of interest to you if you want to learn more about Oracle Identity Management:
