More keynote speaker action… ROCK!

32 days to go.

  1. Another cat out of the bag! This time it’s Chris Blizzard, keynoting at linux.conf.au 2007… Chris is a director of the Mozilla Corporation, heads up One Laptop Per Child software development at Red Hat, and has hacked on numerous projects including Mozilla and GNOME. Addicted to the bleeding edge and driving mass adoption of Free Software, he is a one man Statler and Waldorf. Chris has the words “freedom” and “innovation” tattooed under his eyelids. This announcement should not be used as a factual reference on Wikipedia.

  2. Foundations of Open Media Software developer meeting! If you’re in town for linux.conf.au, and you’re a multimedia developer working on Free Software, make sure you don’t miss FOMS, on the Thursday and Friday ahead of the main conference. This is a no-holds-barred working meeting put together by developers, for developers, to map out the next steps towards open media and Free Software world domination. Check out the FOMS website for more information.

  3. Registrations have shot through the 500 mark, and we haven’t even hit the traditional one-month-to-go Procrastinator’s Spike yet! Jon Oxer knows the score. He can smell inevitability a mile away. Make sure you register soon, to secure your spot at linux.conf.au — not to mention on-site accommodation and dinner tickets… Oh wait, I just mentioned them.

  • I keep hearing it: “Mugshot is becoming useful!” … and it really is. It’s pretty cool to see the online footprints of your friends in aggregate — it’s like a very sexy portrait Planet. I would totally put the widget on my blog… if it were not Flash.
  • “Mylo is primarily a portable media device that can access the Internet and the 770 is an Internet device that can play back media. Mylo gets the edge for portability and polish while the 770′s Bluetooth capabilities greatly improve its connectivity.”
