Paul will be one of the featured presenters at the 2008 Communities Exchange Summit, next week. His presentation is called “It’s Not About the Tools: How Oracle Builds Customer Communities”.
There’s a teaser Q&A session posted, if you want more incentive. If you’re in San Jose next week and want to check it out, here’s the skinny.

If you’re attending, stop by and say hi to Paul, maybe rattle his cage a bit with some tough questions.
While we’re talking about conferences, it looks like Paul will also be speaking at Defrag this year. Defrag is in Denver, November 3-4. Sounds cold. I’ll be attending as well for giggles. Check out the speaker list, solid.
Update: Looks like Paul won’t be there after all, due to a scheduling conflict, but never fear, you’ll still get your fix of AppsLab goodness from me. That’s right, I’ll be speaking instead of Paul, assuming the organizers want me 🙂
hey jake- actually, the avg high temp in November in Denver is 54 — and all defrag attendees get an awesome fleece to help stay warm. Trust me, you're gonna love it. 😉
I'm not that worried, since I'll be in the airport, a cab and the hotel most of the two days. Still, I hope it's not like March, when during Collaborate it went from 70 and sunny to 30 and snowing in the span of three days.
Looking forward to the conference, looks like fun.
