Palm and HP to be at OSCON2010, we'll be there too

Long-time open source innovators Palm and HP are going to be at the Open Source Convention in sunny Portland Oregon next week, where many of the key players in the Open Source space - including Google, Intel and Microsoft - will converge.  HP's Phil Robb is set to give a presentation on Wednesday titled "Cloudy with a Chance of Revolution" where he'll outline how the company plans to innovate:

Join us in this session to hear how our recent acquisition of Palm, our focus on modular platforms integrating servers, storage, and networking, our expertise with open source cloud stacks, and our latest research into virtualization, security, and scalability of Linux and other components of cloud computing creates new opportunities for developers. Also, you might walk away with some cool shwag in the palm of your hand.

While the Palm crew themselves won't be giving any presentations (outside of a non-Palm related presentation by Josh Marinacci on how to market your open source project on a shoestring budget), they'll be present at the event in HP's booth demoing Ares and giving away phones.  Hit the break for the full schedule as it relates to Palm (those not interested in OSCON can still visit the Palm booth for free), or you can find the full schedule for the event here.

And we'll be there just like we were at MobileBeat when HP CTO Phil McKinney gave the keynote speech for the event, of course, so drop us a line if you're going to be there too!
