Tomorrow I leave for the O’Reilly Open Source Convention.

This year, for the first time, there isn’t an Apache track, and my tutorial is in the Javascript/AJAX track. Ok, a little weird, but I guess I can live with that. There’s also a Web Apps track, where some of the other stuff traditionally categorized as “Apache” has been placed.

I wonder if Apache, or web infrastructure stuff in general, is just not selling seats anymore. Or perhaps we (the ASF) confused things by insisting that “Apache != httpd”. Which, while true, also encourages people to come up with alternate naming for stuff, and thus make Apache (the web server) less visible.
