Attended day two of the OSCOM conference today — mostly interesting stuff. Among the highlights of the conference so far (in no particular order):

  • Jo Walsh is officially the coolest human being on the planet. Her work with a semantic mapping MUD of London has easily been the most impressive thing I’ve seen at this conference so far (other than the Dave Winer asshole thing…which, honestly, was awe-inspiring).

Maybe next year there’ll be mud wrestling. One can only hope.
