Linux conferences and events... I don't attend as many as I should...but what I do keeps me chained here mostly. I was invited to the Linux Symposium/Conference a while back and did attend...not sure if I'd ever be invited again though. A little something about putting a panel on the spot about Marketing Linux.
Hey Redhat, IBM...Novell. It's OK man...we got it covered. At least it's a start.
At any rate, I spoke with Bob Krausen a few days ago and he told me that there was some concern expressed in a particular IRC chat...one in which John "Mad Dog" Hall participated; that attendance at some of these bigger functions is or may be dropping. Oh and John...It was a blast...hope to see you again soon.
Going by the pre-registration numbers that is...things are not as good as they used to be. Yeah, it's back to school time and college students don't have the time to travel now, that is a point. But what is concerning many is the slow but steady drop in attendance of many of these functions. Is this a trend? I dunno...
I've posted some information about upcoming/currently-running events just so everyone knows they are happening. If you get a chance, folks would like to see your face...and hear your voice. It's more important than you think.
