I’m Presenting at LugRadio Live USA!!

LugRadio Live 2008 USA bannerDespite rumors that may have been previously propagated by certain people of a sullied character (me), I am now coming to LugRadio Live 2008. This weekend. At the Metreon. In San Francisco.

At noon on Saturday, April 12:

“Reverend Ted’s Noon Hour Extravaganza”
or
“Freedom and the Cloud: Developer Platforms meet Software as a Service”
A new wave of software development is taking shape, allowing developers to create and deploy software entirely through the browser. In this talk, Ted Haeger explains platform-as-a-service and some of the issues it raises regarding software freedom. What is the GPL’s “SaaS loophole”? How do web service providers promote or discourage the ethics of Free Software? Why does the Affero GPL matter? How does free software enable invigorate startup innovation, and what are the ethical obligations to reciprocate of the companies that use free software to build their business?

I believe that I might also be flagged as the back-up candidate to host the Gong-a-Thong should the Mighty Aaron Bockover chicken out. (Imagine my relief when I was informed that Aaron was chosen over me…because I’m not quite as pasty.)
