For those who can't attend, a podcast will be available:

Oracle has announced plans to offer content content via podcasting for the Oracle OpenWorld San Francisco conference, Sept. 17 - 22, 2005 at Moscone Center.

"Oracle is one of the first companies to bring podcasting to a conference to reach audiences who may not have been able to attend," said Oracle Senior Vice President Judy Sim. "By podcasting, OpenWorld attendees will be able to listen to relevant content long after the show is over."

The Oracle OpenWorld podcasts will deliver news and information about each daily theme including Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Applications and Oracle Database and Grid technologies. Attendees will be able to download audio programming and store content for future use and those who are not able to attend the show benefit from access to valuable, relevant information.

During Oracle OpenWorld, Oracle will conduct interviews with technology experts that will be syndicated through the OTN TechCasts RSS feed. By subscribing to this feed, users will be able to download these podcasts in the common MP3 audio format via iTunes 4.9 or podcast clients such as iPodder or Doppler to portable music players free of charge. Users can subscribe to the OTN TechCasts feed, or download standalone MP3 podcasts, from the OTN website....

Why all the talk about Oracle OpenWorld? This event is actually one of the things that inspired the creation of this blog. Although I didn't mention it at the time, I am scheduled to attend Oracle OpenWorld, and will try to blog about it while I'm up there. It's better to blog about Oracle OpenWorld in a technical blog than in a general interest blog (OK, here's some Oracle Database 10g news...here's some Stacy Nadeau news)...

I'll try to post information before the conference also as I encounter it. Please be advised that my primary interest is in the database technologies, but if I run across something interesting in one of the other product lines I'll talk about that also.

Also be advised that I am not a DBA. Heck, I'm an economics major. Nuff said.
