Expo Floor at O'Reilly Java Conf.

Over the past few years I've photographed experts in the areas of Java, Open Source, Macintosh, and Emerging Technology.

Below you'll find a menu of links that will lead you to pictures from conferences such as the O'Reilly Mac OS X Conference. I have many more images than the ones listed here, but the links on this page should give you a good sampling of what I find to be very interesting photographic subjects.

The Personal Side of Technology --
A History in Pictures

The Emerging Technology Conference in April of 2003 was as electric as ever. This show began in 2000 as a peer-to-peer event, but so many interesting topics on the edge of P2P caused conference organizers to rename the event ETech, short for Emerging Technology.

In the Fall of 2002, O'Reilly & Associates held the first major Mac OS X Conference in Santa Clara, CA. Presenters included David Pogue, Sal Soghoian, and FreeBSD guru, Jordan Hubbard.

Great minds from the worlds of Web services and P2P converged on the Westin Santa Clara during May 2002 for the Emerging Technology conference. Every thing from wireless networking, to weblogging, to building Web Services was covered during this four-day event.

The desert was supposed to provide winter relief for attendees at the Bioinformatics Conference in Tucson, AZ during January 2002, but a snow storm made east coast visitors feel right at home.

The O'Reilly Peer-to-Peer Conference in Washington DC during the week of Nov. 5, 2001 included key personalities such as Stanford Law Professor Lawrence Lessig, RIAA Chief Hillary Rosen, and Congressman Rick Boucher. This page includes conference reports and photo galleries.

Nine months earlier, at the first Peer-to-Peer Conference in San Francisco, CA, my photos included Napster's Shawn Fanning, Freenet's Ian Clarke and Sun's Bill Joy. This page includes conference reports and photo galleries.

In March of 2001, I covered the O'Reilly Java Conference in Santa Clara, CA and captured IBM's colorful Simon Phipps in my camera lens, as well as various other Java experts and technologists. This page includes conference reports and photo galleries.

In June of 2001 I stopped by Sun's JavaOne Conference in San Francisco, CA long enough to write an article about Apple's presence there with a nice selection of images.

Then in July of 2001, I traveled to San Diego to shoot the O'Reilly Open Source Convention that featured big names in the community such as Larry Wall, Michael Tiemann, Eric Raymond, Jon Orwant, Fred Baker, and special guest, Microsoft Vice President Craig Mundie. This page includes conference reports and photo galleries.

At MacWorld 2001, I published some of the first photos of Apple's new Titanium G4 laptop computer.

I used pictures from the 2000 Seybold Conference to illustrate my article, Six Great Things About Photoshop 6.0 for Web Review.

In fact, I've always liked the Seybold conference in San Francisco, and in Sept 1999 I reported on Steve Jobs keynote address where he introduced the Apple Cinema Display.
