I have more details on the Open Source Forum Russia. It appears that the term “keynote” was a little inaccurate. I’m giving a regular conference session. Sorry for any exaggerated impression of my importance I may have given. Lest you think I am disappointed, this is actually an enormous relief. I was getting progressively more nervous about giving a plenary session. Yikes. Making a few remarks in a plenary session at ApacheCon is one thing, but a keynote?
The real keynotes are being given by Maddog Hall, Larry Wall, and Adam Jollans, among others.
There will be a driver waiting in the Moscow airport for me, with a sign with my name on it. I’ve *never* had that kind of vip treatment. I’m getting quite excited about this trip. I might even start packing soon. 😉
