[ Thanks to Frederik Dannemare for this link. ]

Aarhus Linux User Group (AaLUG) has invited Dr. Peter Salus to come to Denmark as a keynote speaker at the University of Aarhus.

Abstracts:

Dr. Peter Salus - Trauma on the Internet (Monday, February 25)
Over the decades since the beginning of the ARPAnet in 1969, a variety of mishaps has bedeviled the networks. In addition to bad software and bad routers, the past ten years have brought us natural disasters (e.g. earthquakes, hurricanes), malicious mischief (e.g. DDoS attacks, Code Red, Nimda), terrestrial and maritime cable cuts (Ohio, China Sea), and outright assaults (9/11). This talk will illustrate the effects and discuss the ways that the Internet has handled them and what the future may hold.

Dr. Peter Salus - A Decade of Linux (Tuesday, February 26)
Linux was `born' on 17 September 1991. Since then it has expanded fantastically and taken on a world-wide presence. This presentation will examine the growth an development of open and free software, the forces that impel it, and the milestones in the growth and development of Linux.

There is no entry fee, of course, and we are lucky to have Denmark's biggest Internet Service Provider, TDC Internet, as the main sponsor of the event.

Should you happen to be in Denmark, February 25-26, we encourage you to stop by. More info is available at the AaLUG website (in Danish only, sorry) or by contacting kerne@aalug.dk.
