If it was not for Jay Sulzberger (via PhoList) forwarding an update by Evan Korth on the New York Events, I might have missed completely One Web Day 2008 which takes place on September 22nd so if you are in a different time zone than I am (US, Eastern Standard Time), say in the Asia- Pacific region it has already started.
Let me just make a wish for One Web Day 2008: don't ask me for another password and ID.
Ask me for my name, e-mail address and even a Captcha but please for basic things such as comments don't get the database spinning.
