Four Simple Words to Remember on FOSS Forums

[Editor's note: This commentary originally ran as an item in the Larry the Free Software Guy blog earlier this year.]

I wrote a blog item back in October 2011 that garnered the highest amount of hits (well into five figures), and the highest amount of comments (around 200), that this blog has ever achieved. Even the follow-up blog item garnered an abnormally high number of eyeballs. No, I’m not linking to either because I’d prefer [...]

A Seat at the Big Kids’ Table at Ohio LinuxFest

Ohio LinuxFest

For a while now, I have been planning to attend Ohio LinuxFest in 2014. It is one of the largest and most prestigious Linux events on anyone’s calendar. Attending OLF 2014 will afford me a chance to meet some people I have yet to meet…in the flesh anyway.

The cancelling of SeaGL’s coverage was announced earlier today by FOSS Force publisher and editor Christine Hall.

“Unfortunately, we’ve been hit by an unavoidable scheduling conflict, which means it will not be possible for Larry Cafiero to be in Seattle to cover the [...]

Organizer Confirms Both POSSCON and ‘Great Wide Open’ in 2015

POSSCON logo

This year IT-oLogy, the organization behind the annual POSSCON conference in Columbia, South Carolina, cancelled the event in order to focus on launching the Great Wide Open (GWO) conference in Atlanta. At the time, some expressed fear that this might signal the end of the Palmetto State event, that Great Wide Open actually meant a move and new name for the conference. At the same time, others were speculating that GWO would be a one-off [...]
