WEDNESDAY, March 5th. Chicago, seems a tad warmer, but still too cold for my taste!

The last day of the conference was a short one for me - I had to leave around 11:30 to catch my plane. I had a nice long chat with Dieter Schuller from Radiant Logic, who brought me up to par with their vision and technology. In my previous job Dieter and I were competitors, so we had a lot in common and of course knew each others products, but I got a much deeper understanding on Radiant Logic's vision and approach to virtual directories. As I am currently writing Kuppinger Cole's technology report on virtual directories (due before the European Identity Congress in April), this came in very handy. DEC 2008 has been an intense, and immensely rewarding experience, and my head is spinning! This has been my first, and certainly won't be my last!
