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.


When Anthony Bourdain attacks

Mr. Bourdain shares his thoughts on the Food Network. The following gives you some idea what awaits you in this blog entry:

SANDRA LEE: Pure evil. This frightening Hell Spawn of Kathie Lee and Betty Crocker seems on a mission to kill her fans, one meal at a time. She Must Be Stopped. Her death-dealing can-opening ways will cut a swath of destruction through the world if not contained.

And when you finish your helping of Bourdain, try Buford’s take on the same subject.
