A lovely dinner

Last night I had dinner with a cast of characters:

We grabbed a late batch of dim sum at Ton Kiang. Good stuff I have to say.

One of the things that Mark Mc and noticed was that the identity market is remarkably small. It is definitely a good thing that ex-Access360/IBM, Thor/Oracle, Waveset/Sun guys can break bread and have a laugh over the deals that we used to compete. It’s that (grudging, at times) comradery in this market that I love and it is one the things that makes Catalyst so much fun.

  1. Ian,

    Your digital photography class has paid for itself once again. I had a great time and it was fun to see everyone from all over the US at a table scarfing down some killer dim sum.

    I couldn’t agree more that this industry is indeed small, yet the longevity of those of us in it shows a commitment to solving the problems that exist, while leaving our logos at the door.

    My memorable take away from the evening was ‘If I swear, I’ll sound like management’. Great line.
