The OSBC curse (or blessing?)

OSBC keynotes are dropping like flies. Something in the water?

Jon Williams

A few weeks ago Steve Pearson (CBS) and Jon Williams (Kaplan Test) keynoted the Open Source Business Conference. In the past week, both have opted to leave their employers to join other companies.

There must have been something in the water at OSBC. :-)

Steve hasn't told me where he's going, but Jon will be joining iVillage as its new CTO. If NBC's iVillage was looking for an open source savvy, innovative and entrepreneurial CTO, it couldn't have done any better.

At any rate, if you want a new job, please ask me about OSBC keynote opportunities.
