by 11:30 tomorrow i'll be in san diego. i'm running around doing the usual "day before" getting rid routine. so i have no time to actually blog for real. but even if i did, i don't think i would; instead, i'd point people to the recent entries of kevin "ervin" ottens (>here and here>) and john palmieri (here) to see a really encouraging example of how things can work between the open source desktop projects.
i also spoke with ervin a bit about freedesktop.org the other day. well, actually i listened while he shared some perspective on it and i think he's got some great ideas on how to kick it up a notch.
if you are trying to build a cross desktop project (i dunno ... say for icons?) i'd really suggest taking a look at how ervin and john and the others involved with that set of technologies are doing their thing.
