From OpenID to OAuth to Activity Streams, Chris Messina is working to break the walled gardens of the internet and ensure the longevity of social networking through the production of technology that allows people to network between different websites. In this session, Chris will talk about his ideas and approaches to our identities online.
Is Drupal a moral product? That question shouldn't make sense since any technology can be used for good or for evil. While that's true, it doesn't tell the whole story. In this talk, we'll wonder what makes some actions moral, apply this to the Web, and then finally to Drupal.
Dries Buytaert will give his bi-annual State of Drupal talk in the beginning of DrupalCon DC, where he'll discuss where Drupal is and where it is going. In particular, he'll discuss Drupal 7, usability, the Drupal.org redesign, and other developments to Drupal.
