+ Tuesday night I met with David Moore of Participatory Culture. You have probably heard about their player Democracy. They just rolled out version .9 which means you know what, they are very, very close to full force. Two of the most notable points about Democracy that I like which distinguishes them from other video aggregators are a) their open source mission: to provide open tools for others to build and create with, and b) their use of p2p distribution.

+ Wednesday I met with Dave Winer. Every time I speak with him, he talks about things that will make sense to people 3 or 4 years later. The very biggest ideas simply put. The Developer Philosopher.
+ Thursday eve, I met up for a drink with David-Michel Davies (appropriate double Dave usage for the finale) who I originally met this year in Austin at SXSW. Probably one of the nicest people to ever walk out of the web and into the real world, he didn't even say anything after I forgot to bring the Webby tapes (i.e. we covered the Webby Awards this year and have a lot of b-roll he may want to use for documenting).
