For any Phoronix readers that would like to discuss Linux, open-source, benchmarking, and other matters -- whether it be the topics themselves, constructive criticism, or anything else -- a meet-up is being planned for next week on 15 June in Boston/Cambridge, Massachusetts.

I'll be out in Boston at the end of next week for an interesting "Linux event", I'm not sure if this can be publicly mentioned at this time, so I'll refrain from more detail for now (but no, it's not for a preview of the GNOME and Mono Festival of Love). Regardless, when it can be mentioned and written about on Phoronix, it will interest a lot of the Linux hardware enthusiasts out there -- namely if you were intrigued by the creative 12-core 30-watt Ubuntu Linux cluster I began to mention yesterday.

If there's sufficient interest, on Friday, 15 June, Phoronix readers can meet at the Cambridge Brewing Co. It's a fairly nice brewery in Cambridge right by the MIT campus. I've been modestly pleased by Cambridge Brewing Co in the past.

If any Phoronix readers / Phoronix Test Suite users / Linux users are interested in meeting up on Friday, please let your interest be known either by commenting in the forums (using the "Comments & Discussion" link below), send a Tweet, or email me. As soon as I can gauge the interest level to find out if the event and venue will work on short notice, I can figure out a reservation time, etc.
