"Added to that, just days from now, is the inaugural LinuxCon
and the Geek High Holy Day, Software Freedom Day.
"If you've been following along for the past few months, then it
will come as little surprise that the date for LinuxCon is closing
fast. Beginning this coming Monday, geeks from all corners of
geekdom will descend on Portland to learn about Linux straight from
the mouths of the masters, including a beardless Bdale Garbee,
Ubuntu's Mark Shuttleworth, and the man himself, Linus Torvalds.
They schedule also includes the obligatory sessions and seminars,
networking opportunities, discounted certification exams, a
Penguin-based bowling tournament fundraiser, and the (melo)dramatic
unmasking of the Fake Linuses Torvalds."
