The $100 LWE

Well, Linux World Expo in San Francisco. I want to thank the following people for helping me out:

Userful, for shipping my down there Jorge Castro, for letting me crash on his floor Debra Williams, my editor, for a great Sushi dinner Jim McQuillan's friend, for a great Brazilian all-meat dinner Canonical, for all around awesome-ness

On the capture of penguins

So Jane Silber roped me into a team competing for the Golden Penguin award at LWE. Seems that our team came out ahead, against the Novell Open Audio Team (great guys, btw). They were shocked that Jorge and myself were volunteers, however.

On the absence of Red Hat

They should have been at LWE. End of story.

On running the GNOME booth

Jorge and I rocked! While we had no banners and swag, we did get to meet some great people. I had a great conversation with a Japanese consultant, through a translator (always fun), about the Japanese Linux market and about Open Source in general.

Oh, and about 95% of the people who we talked to who ran GNOME were running Ubuntu. There was a stunning amount of Ubuntu at the show.

On the running of the network at LWE

DHCP is a good thing. No, it really is. Oh, and Network Manager needs to deal with static IPs.

On Ubucon

Currently now at Ubucon. Much goodness, more later.
