Comment On This Article

Unfortunately, due to the grueling winter weather (and an added issue), we weren't able to make it out to the Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE) 2008. However, SCALE is providing Internet video streams of some of the speeches and other information. Jono Bacon, the Ubuntu community manager, had officially kicked off SCALE 2008 with his keynote on the evolution of desktop Linux thus far and where he believes its headed. An embedded video and more information on this keynote, which is entitled Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants: The Coming Of The Linux Desktop can be found on his personal blog.

Streaming from SCALE 2008 tomorrow on Ustream.TV will be Stormy Peters' keynote with broadcasting at 10:00AM PST. Stormy, who has been a female open-source advocate, will talk about whether commercial companies are killing the open-source movement by paying developers to work on open-source software. Her keynote is entitled Would You Do It Again For Free?

If you too weren't able to make it out to SCALE 2008, you can look at other upcoming open-source / Linux events over the next few months. Phoronix coverage of past Linux events can be found here. For more information on the Southern California Linux Expo, check out its website.
