Just a heads up on what is happening in Bangalore, India, on Dec 10-12.

Linux Bangalore/2001 is India's first national Linux conference, and strives to show the difference between a "technology" and a "technology-business" event.

65 talks, ranging from pure tech ("Developing Voice over IP under Linux"), through the regional ("Indian Language computing on Linux") and the controversial ("Linux on the Corporate Desktop"), to the equally important legal stuff ("Intellectual Property and Knowledge Commons: The Case of Free Software"), with tracks for System Administrators, Developers, Users and CxOs - Linux Bangalore/2001 jams the good stuff into three solid days of learning, interacting and teaching.

Slated to be an annual event, starting small, the event quickly caught the attention of people, swelling the registered delegates from (what was thought would be) 200-300 to well over 2000 in a matter of days, attracting speakers and delegates from across India and even from other parts of Asia, Europe and the USA.

So why post something like this on Linux Today?

Because we would like the world to know that good things are happening on the Linux front in India, and we would like you to be there in spirit.

The event website is at http://linux-bangalore.org/2001 - hit the Schedules button there to see what is happening and when.

Thanks in advance for any mojo you can send our way - it is important to us, and we need lots of it! :-)
