One of my favorite things is meeting readers of our Linux Web sites in person. I have been fortunate to meet quite a few over the years, even the real Dean Pannell. It's a great opportunity to get to know the people behind the electrons.

With this in mind, I wanted to share the announcement that the Linux community help Web site JustLinux has announced its first-ever JustLinux Community Event, to be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California, on June 5.

And, because of the strength of the Linux Today community, readers of Linux Today are also invited to attend this event.

The Communuty Event, which is being held in conjunction with the Enterprise Linux Forum at the SCCC from June 4-6, is your chance to meet community members, leaders, and editors from JustLinux and Linux Today face-to-face.

Never ones to miss a good party, I will be there, along with LT editor emeritus Michael Hall.

This event is free to the public--all we ask is that you pre-register for a free Expo Only pass to the Enterprise Linux Forum event. Registration for the Spring 2003 ELF can be done online. Not only will this pass grant you access to the Community Event, but you will also get the chance to meet and greet vendors from all aspects of the Linux business community, including Red Hat, IBM, Oracle, and Ximian, to name a few.

Refreshments and snacks will be served at the Community Event, which I hope will be the first of many to come. (East Coast readers, fear not! We are definitely going to have a similar event at the Fall 2003 ELF in Washington, DC this October.)

Discussion and suggestions for this event is certainly invited in the talkbacks here or at JustLinux.

As the event nears, we'll release more details, such as the specific time. I hope to see you in Silicon Valley this June!
