6 Quick Things from GnomeDex (Friday)

1. There are many smart and interesting people here, with lots and lots of laptops.
2. All the laptops have made us exceeded our wi-fi bandwidth, so access is spotty.
3. Dave Winer is excited about the future of OPML, which is about sharing information in outline form.
4. Microsoft is building RSS into Longhorn in a big way. Also, they are using a Creative Commons license.
5. The Hive bees just made us laugh with their mock presentation.
6. I really wish we had better web access.
