"Hard to believe it's been a week since I left LWE. Of course,
I've been exhausted, sick, and asleep much of that time, but the
glow from the show has followed me to Chicagoland anyway. I can
hardly wait for April COMDEX (with the Linux Business Expo). Should
be an interesting counterpoint."
"Time lends perspective to every human endeavor. In that
light, I now award my first annual (or however often) Linux Poster
Children awards. These are the people and/or companies and/or
products and/or freebies that have stuck in my gooey little
mind. Fair warning: This was my first LWE and I'm no clued-in
insider. These choices come from a bumpkin's eye's view. In spite
of the big signs and big booths, I couldn't get that worked up over
the major doings from IBM, VA-Linux (well, maybe the Andover thing)
and the like. Don't get me wrong: I love what the big Movers and
Shakers are doing for our world. I just have more fun watching the
guppies swimming in their wake. Linux means opportunity as much as
freedom, and some of those guppies will grow into groupers and
ocean cats, not to mention barracuda and shark."
