"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."
