There’s two neat conferences at the beginning of May, at pretty much opposite ends of the earth: the NLUUG spring conference on File Systems and Storage and the Open Tech Summit Taiwan.

The NLUUG conference has Jos van den Oever in it, on Strigi, search, semantics – after all, storage is fine but you do have to be able to find your stuff in the filesystem for it to be any use.

I’ll be at the one in the Netherlands – my regret being there’s not enough days in the year to attend all the useful and interesting tech conferences, because the conference in Taiwan sounds very useful from a licensing, compliance and shiny gadgets point of view.
