Community Notes


Article from Issue 67/2006

It’s that time of year again. Spring is in the air, the clocks are moving forward, and the first of the year’s major Linux conferences is kicking off in Boston, Massachusetts. LinuxWorld Expo (LWE) has rapidly become one of the most interesting and talked about mainstream Linux conventions anywhere in the world. I’m certainly not the only person who would rather fly from London to Boston than go to my local LinuxWorld and revel in a tiny convention hall filled with a few carefully chosen exhibitors. If last year’s convention is anything to go by, this will be a real blast. This time last year, I hooked up with OLS organizer Andrew Hutton for a 1,000 mile road trip that took us (on a very skewed route) from Ottawa to Boston. Once we’d arrived, we enjoyed three days of hanging out with some of the more well known members of our Free Software community. People like Don Becker, who you may never have heard of, but who single handedly wrote much of the Linux networking stack. If you didn’t make it to this year’s convention, consider coming along in 2007. You won’t be disappointed.
