"The LinuxWorld Conference and Expo is rapidly approaching. There are many events planned in San Jose, and Linux.com is here to highlight some of them for you."

"Linux.com's own Jessica Sheffield will be moderating a forum on Open Source and education. Some of the featured speakers will include: David Mandel a member of PLUG, the Portland group who's doing a lot with Riverside High School, Chris Lehmann a high school teacher and technology coordinator at the Beacon School in New York, Emmett Plant a writer for Slashdot and Greg Sanders, site manager for Themes.org and a former educator."

"In Jessica's own words:"

"We think there's enormous potential that isn't being tapped because people may not realize how important education is going to be to this community. Right now, anyone who knows Linux well can get a job, but the same used to be true for Windows. In ten years, when everyone's using Linux, education is going to see renewed importance in this industry."
