LinuxWorld Expo London 2006

The powers that be at Free Software Magazine decided to be a media sponsor of LinuxWorld Expo UK at Olympia, London held on the 25th and 26th of October. As I make a habit of going to that expo, and I also write for the magazine when I remember to hand articles in, I was contacted and discovered I was to be handed a “press” badge for the event. So, on the day, I set off early from Cambridge to enjoy the privileges of my new super-status.

FAVE 2006 - creative free software event, 25th November, London

FAVE is an event in the UK for people who are interested in free audio and video software on Linux and other platforms. I'm helping to put together the second annual event, which will feature talks, workshops and performances by free software artists and developers.

Entry costs £5 and registration in advance is required, via the FAVE website at www.fave.org.uk This is just to help us cover the venue costs, and give us an idea of the number of people coming.

If any FSM readers would like to help out with publicity, or on the day itself, they would be most welcome.

The state of the swag at LinuxWorld San Francisco

While at LinuxWorld, I was contemplating how IBM's multi-billion dollar investment in free software has born fruit in the form of their hard sought after two inch rubber tux, when I met up with Robin Miller who interviewed me on the quality of this year's swag. Officially, this year's theme was mobile computing, although virtualization also predominated.
