Beyond the demo of MeeGo Tablet UX running on Wayland, next week at the MeeGo Conference in San Francisco are a variety of other interesting sessions.

There may also be some sort of major announcement coming out of the MeeGo Conference, but those details are unknown at the moment. The only official keynote listed is just that by the Linux Foundation's Jim Zemlin. As mentioned last week, a PR representative was pushing hard for me to go to the conference for unknown reasons, in line with when major announcements usually come down the pipe. But as it wasn't confirmed or justified, I won't be attending. [Note to PR reps: if not willing to finance the travel costs from Chicago, I'm much more prone to going to European conferences than those in the US. At least there it's guaranteed the beers are good and usually have more sources there.]
