ATO ’14 Off to a Good Start

Walking through the noisy between sessions crowd, I asked Charley Rich (not the dead country singer, he assured me) if he’d been at All Things Open last year. He hadn’t. Rich had rented a booth at the conference and had come down from Long Island to unveil his new SaaS product, jKool. We were looking for a reasonably quiet place where we could sit for an interview.

I pointed out that ATO was only in [...]

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.

Nearly fifty years later, Raleigh still has cool [...]

FOSS Force Drops Coverage of SeaGL

FOSS Force won’t be covering the Seattle GNU/Linux conference (SeaGL) which is scheduled to take flight this coming Friday and Saturday. Plans to cover the event were made public several weeks back.

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 [...]
