Ohio Linux Fest 2009

Posted 31 July 2009 - 07:02 AM

Not sure exactly where to put this - but hopefully this is sufficient.

I know it is a little bit early, 41 days as of this posting but I will forget to mention this down the road.

The seventh annual Ohio LinuxFest will be on September 25-26, 2009 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center, in downtown Columbus, Ohio.

I will be there on the 26th all day if anyone in the Ohio vicinity is interested in meeting up. It is free to attend so if you are interested in learning more about Linux or just want to network or score some cool free swag.

This is the website.

http://www.ohiolinux.org/

You don't not have to be a Linux enthusiast either, this is a good opportunity to learn more about the great Open Source Community.

Registration is free or they have a supporter package.

Thinks he will now be going on Friday.. ;)

Actually nothing really is going on till Saturday. Also I have to work all day Friday as well.

All the cool swag is given away earlier on Saturday morning. They always run out of shirts, stickers and distros by mid day.

I know last year the after party Dual Core was there doing a concert. It was a fun time.

DualCore is amazing.

Any good talks this year NYKC? I will be attending as I usually do. I will also still be strongly against the "neighborhood" views that were suggested last year :P

Hahaha - damn skiddies shunning those less superior to you.

DualCore is pretty fricking awesom, if you look at the pics from last years LinuxFest you will see my bald spot from when I was watching him perform.

They haven't announced all the speakers yet but here is who is going to be there so far.

Quote

2009 Keynotes
Columbus, Ohio – Ohio LinuxFest is celebrating 40 years of UNIX! To celebrate, Ohio LinuxFest’s will touch on both ends of 40 years of history this year. Ohio LinuxFest is proud to announce that M. Douglas McIlroy and Shawn Powers as keynote speakers for this year’s Ohio LinuxFest. Dr. McIlroy developed UNIX pipes and UNIX tools such as spell, diff, sort, join, graph, speak and tr. Dr. McIlroy pioneered component based software engineering. A mathematician and engineer, as well as a programmer Dr. McIlroy was at the head of Bell Laboratories Computer Techniques Research Department, contributing to the birth of UNIX. Shawn Powers is an editor for Linux Journal, a collector of vintage Garfield coffee mugs, the Technology Director for a school in northern Michigan, a video podcaster, a writer, slightly overweight, father of 3 girls, and an avid Star Trek fan. Not necessarily in that order. Sadly, he's most often noted as, 'The guy with the funny hair.

Other Notable Speakers

OLF 2009 has the return of popular speakers such as:

* Dr. Peter Salus
* Bdale Garbee
* Elizabeth Garbee

More speakers to be announced later.

Peter H. Salus is an aged technological historian. Among his books are "A Quarter Century of UNIX," "Casting the Net," and (most recently) "The Daemon, the Gnu and the Penguin."

Bdale first contributed to Free Software in 1979, has a long history of involvement in the Debian distribution, and is Chief Technologist for Open Source and Linux at HP. His primary hobby seems to be turning all of his other hobbies in to open source projects.

Elizabeth developed an early interest in open source, installing her first Debian machine (with some help!) at age 9. Since then, her main computing interest has been graphics manipulation and digital art. Aside from computers, Elizabeth is a dedicated student who is passionate about music, and enjoys reading comic books.
