I think I'm looking forward to Ohio Linux Fest 2009

Link: http://www.ohiolinux.org/

This year I'm taking an more active roll in the organizing of it, then I did last year. And, it is shaping up to be pretty interesting. Though budget wise, its not looking like I'll be able to make....but now I'm thinking I might scale back my travel plans so that I can still make it.

I'm, again, primarily helping review speaker submissions for who will get to present. And, some of the people already lined up as keynotes and such seem quite interesting.

For instance, Peter H. Salus will be a keynote at OLF this year.

Also Shawn Powers had been invited to be a keynote. Wonder if this means that I'll finally get to meet him in person. He was at Penguicon earlier this year, but I only saw him twice...once as I was rushing to catch one of the elusive slow moving elevators. And, the other time while I was in the beef line.

Among the other chatter about possible speakers...is Dan Kaminsky, which stands out as a name I recognize because of the DNS exploit and all the extra work that got dropped on my lap last summer. Though later it was fun building new bind for my home DNS servers (the RedHat 7.3 and SuSE 9.3 boxes).

Elsewhere...Maco commented that if I pick her submission, there'll be at least one system administration talk at OLF. And, my response was that I don't know if I want to hear system administration talk when I'm on vacation. Though the whole idea of OLF for vacation is kind of odd. Especially since stress management says I need to go on vacations where I completely stop thinking about work.... &#59;D Guess we'll see when I start reviewing submissions.

The last time I was ever on such a vacation...was in 2000. There was enough activity to keep me occupied and there was no Internet access or cellular service out there. Both of which are now available (which impacted the trip I took in 2005...in fact the page of services down just as I was departing really messed things up...and the it wasn't fun trying to do remote access on the spotty wifi/satellite Internet service.

There are also other features at OLF that I'm interesting in seeing/hearing. Like the DIOS panel on Sunday. (Diversity In Open Source). Or hearing Elizabeth Garbee speak again, which turned out to be rather interesting to hear when I heard her speak last year.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
