Everything here is my opinion. I do not speak for your employer.

What have I done?
According to http://net-itech.com/america/news/story_00025.htm, I said this about Guadec:
"Net Integration produces and contributes to several Open Source
projects in the process of making our Net Integrator and other products, and
we're happy to be able to give back to the community by assisting at
GU4DEC," says Avery Pennarun, Vice President Development and Senior Systems
Architect, Net Integration Technologies. "UniConf, our advanced
object-relational web-enabled remote management console with cross-platform
transaction-oriented XML content delivery, will totally change the way
people do business and revolutionize the world of Open Source."
So here's the bad news: I did, in fact, say that.
And the less bad news: I was kidding when I said it, I swear!
I honestly expected the people in marketing to see my joke, especially that last part about "totally change the way people do business" and "revolutionize the world of Open Source." Unfortunately, it's now a press release linked off our front page. I think I have just learned some kind of important life lesson.
I'll let you know when I figure out what it is.
I'm CEO at Tailscale, where we make network problems disappear.
