It's time.

We've never held a pure developer conference for people working on Jabber technologies. Oh sure, there was once (actually twice) something called Jabbercon, run by the good folks at Jabber Inc., but it was a combined business + developer conference, with the main focus on business. Ever since the last Jabbercon in 2001, people like Doc Searls have been lamenting its disappearance, because it was fun and productive to get lots of Jabber-oriented folks together. Justin Kirby of the OpenAether project pinged me this morning about the possibility of resurrecting Jabbercon, and we chatted for quite a while about the idea. Here's my take:

So I've started to think about this and plan for it. It's all preliminary so far, but the conversation has begun. Let's make it happen!
