Aspen Summit Day 1

Day 1 of the Aspen Summit is nearly complete with only the working dinners remaining, which is where the fireworks can really fly.

It seems a tad narcissistic, but only a tad, to blog about your own conference that you are hosting, so I will direct all to bloggers Declan McCullagh, Dan Gillmor, Jeff Pulver and Michael Powell, who all happen to be here. [The links are to the left and I am presently feeling too lazy to add the links to this post.]

As always, the Aspen Summit brings a humbling crowd together, by which I mean I feel immensely privileged to simply be in the room with many of these people. Bob Kahn, in particular, is a real treat -- as you realize that his mind is thinking 20 years past the rest of us. John Thompson, Stratton Sclavos and Hew Pate were also quite engaging. And Chairman Powell was, as always, his masterful self. (How's that for sucking-up to your speakers?) Looking forward to tomorrow and more neutral appraisals about how we are doing.
