Linux Conference it is. http://www.linux.conf.au.
It's been a while since my last diary entry.
There's things happening towards a CALU 2000. Leaving it a bit late, but it could be pulled off. Actually, this is being changed. CALU doesn't have enough mindshare, so they're trying for plain old "Linux Conference" - at present, they're looking at January - 18th-20th - but nothing's set in stone just yet.
It's about time I do something useful with myself that pays more than $. I listened to Rusty's inspiring talk on "Why to become a kernel hacker" at the recent LinuxExpo in Sydney, and thought to myself, "Don't make eye contact."
That aside, I left Sydney with a renewed feeling that all this stuff matters.. I shall be keeping an eye out for a project to work on .. it might be nice to be able to help in a more tangible way.. and it will give me a chance to do more coding just because I want to...
