I spend most of my OpenLogic attention right now on Wazi, whether it be working with writers like Grant Smith and Dru Lavigne or our terrific internal team on what they might contribute, developing my own contributions, or researching what we might want to cover. Mornings before work I spend reading poetry. Lately Zbigniew Herbert, a Polish poet (I find Alissa Valles translation gorgeous, though it's controversial.) who performs virtuoso syntactic moves with practically no punctuation. Writes complex lists and compound sentences with no commas, for instance. I'm thinking about this phenomena — the way in which what's not there creates and informs, shapes and enhances what is — called by poets and visual artists managing whitespace. And it occurs to me that Wazi, as a project, might be understood at least in part by what it's not, by what we don't want it to be or become, by what we've chosen to leave out.
Two weeks ago, I returned from the ApacheCon 2008 Open Source Software Convention held in New Orleans. This was my first time attending such a conference with the Apache Software Foundation, and for me, it was a great opportunity to build both professional and personal relationships. Looking back on this event I will certainly remember the phenomenal people who contributed to this great experience.
