We are joined by Jon "maddog" Hall to discuss that the USENIX

Because of the post September 11th world we now live in, many
events are suffering. People are staying close to home, and many
events are being canceled. In response to an uncertain political
climate and the recent economic downturn, the USENIX Association
and the Atlanta Linux Showcase, Inc. jointly announced today that
they will offer free registration to everyone wishing to attend
technical sessions at next month's Annual Linux Showcase &
Conference in Oakland, California.
ALS, the former "Atlanta Linux Showcase" is one of the most
unique events in the world for gathering together people who work
on open source projects and get them face to face for a period of a
few days. This allows for the creation of Open Source "Hot Houses"
where programmers will go into a room and work intensively for 3 or
4 days writing code. ALS has historically been a community based
event and has grown in scope and technical depth along with the
open source community. It is a place for Linux developers to
comfortably gather, compare notes, and create new ideas. ALS has
always been where open source professionals can relax and discuss
their projects and interests with their peers. This conference is
important for making open source professionals aware of the issues,
both political and technical, and to get them mobilized to address
them. And to have fun.
The 5th Annual Linux Showcase and Conference
November 5-10, 2001
Oakland Marriott City Center
In Segment Three- We are NOT alone- or how economic
changes have impacted the entire IT industry Is this
actually an opportunity?
We will discuss Jeff's recent return from ISPCON and the
conversations he had had with infrastructure vendors and service
providers. All this worry about the demise of the Linux Industry
group is small potatoes compared with the wholesale implosion of
the Internet business fueled by the failure of all the harebrained
Dot Com's of the late 1990's.
So, we propose the thesis, Is the current economic trend
actually an opportunity of people who have based their business
model on Open Source technologies?
