[ Thanks to Jeff Gerhardt for this link. ]

Tuesday, August 27th, 2002
from the home of Wayne's World, Aurora IL
Tonight LIVE on www.thelinuxshow.com

At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Jeff Gerhardt, Doc Searls (Linux Journal), Arne Flones and Russ Pavlicek; have another down right spooky show lined up tonight on The Linux Show!!

Segment One- The News. We will cover THE HOT NEWS of the last few weeks tonight. In particular, a Gnomedex Update from Doc Searls.

Segment Two- To SCO or not to SCO- News from Caldera GeoFORUM.
Tonight Jeff will be sitting in the press room of the MGM Grand on the Las Vegas Strip. He will be calling in LIVE with Opinder Bawa the new Senoir VP of technology from Caldera/SCO.

With the name change, the redirection to Unix, the continued support of Linux, and turning their business model on its ear, there have been a lot of changes at SCO in the last 48 hours. Opinder will help us wade through their new direction to help us make sense out of all the kaos.

From Jeff-I have to tell you all, I know there have been a lot of knee jerk reactions about these changes, with comments like "here goes Caldera again". But what you have to understand here is that this company has gone through a transition. It is no longer a "Linux" company, but a Unix company that will also support Linux. It is NOT the same creature, and there are good and even interesting reasons. Join the show before you judge.


Do not forget the:
Tell Ten Friends Campaign

We ask that you tell 10 of your friends and associates about the AOTC and GeekPAC and the need to contribute to BOTH organizations. Also ask them to Tell Ten Friends of their own. This will make the AOTC nd GeekPAC grow like an organic entity, like a political virus.

It is important that people contribute to both organzations, if they can legally do so. ONLY US voters may contribute to GeekPAC. Anyone may contribute to the AOTC, even our friens from around the world. Donation forms are located at http://www.aotc.info/joinhelp/joinform.html for the AOTC, and http://www.geekpac.com/joinhelp/joinform.html for GeekPAC.
