I met with Ross Mayfield last night at the All-Bar-One near Tower Bridge on the South Bank of the river Thames last night. I was invited along by my friends at Headshift and I was struck by what a good combination Headshift and Socialtext make. I'm sure Lee Bryant would disagree with my assessment but I have thought for a long time that Headshift are a bit too locked into Atlassian Confluence and that greater ties with other software vendors would be good for them. When I was at PA Consulting we prided ourself on our independence and went to great lengths to remain technology neutral, courting and rejecting the advances of vendors in equal measure.
I also met for the first time fellow PA alumni Lars Plougmann who, even though he is Danish, knows the word 'blunderbuss'. Respeck.
