If you went to LFNW 2009 and wrote a report, let me know so I can link to it. We have magazines flying to print this week and deadlines beating us over the head, so my report will be delayed a few days. In a nutshell, it will say: Two thumbs up for LinuxFest Northwest!

So, until then, I leave you with my favorite LFNW 2009 photo as a teaser.

  • LinuxFest Northwest: Gender Imbalance: In this report, the author notes that there is still a noticeable difference in attendance by women vs. men. However, I'll add that I did notice a nice turnout of children at the event, and these weren't just kids dragged along by parents. One of my most entertaining conversations was with a young girl I met at LFNW. Now only was she quite technical, so also had a wicked sense of humor and I expect that she'll be an amazing web designer in the very near future.

'Maddog' Hall: How open-source software can dominate the world: Todd Bishop reports from maddog's LFNW talk.
