Have you been to one before? 19:15 < Flannel> I haven't no. 19:15 < nhaines> Do we know where in California yet? 19:15 < Flannel> nhaines: Mountain View, like before 19:16 < Flannel> Google Campus, to be specific 19:16 <Grantbow> nhaines: rtfa, lol 19:16 <Grantbow> agenda 19:16 < jess> the fine....? 19:16 < jess> oh 19:16 < nhaines> *There's* the announcement. 19:16 < nhaines> Cool. 19:17 < Flannel> These things are open to the public, but they're not "conference" sorts of things. 19:17 < Flannel> FOSSCamp is a place for general FOSS projects to get together and discuss collaboration, etc. 19:18 < Flannel> Anyone else have questions/comments/whatever about that? 19:18 < Flannel> Alright, moving on to our next: FOSSCON 19:19 < nhaines> It will be fun to have a chance to attend. Now I just have to have a reason. :) 19:19 <Grantbow> I thought I would mention it on the agenda but I'm not sure what, if any, preparations might be useful. 19:19 < Flannel> alright, not moving on 19:19 < Flannel> Grantbow: there really isn't anything for us to do. If people want to attend to check it out, that might be fun 19:19 <Grantbow> San Diego is closer for you folks :-) 19:19 <Grantbow> yeah, ok 19:19 < Flannel> Re-moving on to fOSSCON 19:20 < Flannel> FOSSCON was originally scheduled for last year, got delayed for whateverreason 19:20 < Flannel> Its put on by the freenode people, as a convention/expo/whatever thing for FOSS 19:20 < Flannel> It's going to be in San Diego, September 6 and 7 19:20 <Grantbow> http://fosscon.org/talks/ 19:21 < Flannel> Hmm, website seems to be devoid of a location, so I can't comment on how nice it'll be. 19:22 < nhaines> Do we want to do anything for FOSSCON? 19:22 < Flannel> But, they are still open to talks, and exhibitors, if we'd like to have a booth 19:23 < jess> sounds like it could be fun 19:24 < Flannel> Don't all jump up at once :) 19:25 < nhaines> I'd be willing to do a booth. :) 19:25 < jess> is this a nationwide event? 19:25 < jess> like, will others be coming from around the country for it? 19:26 < Flannel> I guess that depends on if they want to. But I imagine some people will, yes. 19:26 < Flannel> Ah, there is a location 19:28 < Flannel> Yeah, it'd be an easy location to get to, no need to slog through downtown to get to the convention center either. And pretty easy parking too 19:28 < nhaines> yay 19:28 <Yasumoto> gosh 19:28 < Flannel> and if you don't mind walking a little, you can park for free either near, or at a trolley thing and then take the trolley 19:28 <Yasumoto> I was just so proud of the wireless network here at chapman, but I guess not anymore :( 19:29 <Yasumoto> thank goodness for ethernet cables (back) 19:29 < nhaines> :) 19:29 < Flannel> Alright, we'll look into getting a booth, and also announce it to the list, and see if we can't drum up some more support. 19:29 < nhaines> Flannel: okay, so I'll expect a writeup of all that info on the wiki next weekend. ;) 19:29 < jess> i'd be interested in helping out if yasumoto wants to too, heh 19:30 < Flannel> nhaines: Once school starts I'll take one of my breaks and time it, so you know it takes you 340 seconds to walk from the trolley station 19:30 < nhaines> I'll expect a statistical report with averages then. 19:31 < Flannel> nhaines: Sounds good. 19:31 <Yasumoto> cool, I'm caught up ~_~ 19:31 <Yasumoto> does anyone want to send an email to the FOSScon guys? 19:31 <Yasumoto> otherwise I will 19:31 *** Flannel nominates Yasumoto for email correspondence to FOSScon. 19:32 <Yasumoto> brutal 19:32 <Yasumoto> kk 19:33 <Yasumoto> I'll make sure to be much more open about what's going on too :) 19:33 < nhaines> Good. :) 19:33 < jess> yeah, dont be so proprietary 19:33 <Yasumoto> I think I'll be heading up to UDS, though it's the week before Finals 19:33 < jess> :-) 19:33 <Yasumoto> jess: haha 19:34 < Flannel> Alright, so... That it for FOSScon? 19:34 < nhaines> Yasumoto: I probably won't be at all, but if I go for a day or two we'll have lunch. :) 19:34 <Yasumoto> nhaines: aw, come on, you have to 19:34 <Yasumoto> nhaines: it's in California :) 19:34 <Yasumoto> christer edwards was saying we have no excuse not to go 19:35 < Flannel> Yasumoto: where was this? 19:35 < Flannel> Ah 19:35 <Yasumoto> at oscon 19:35 < nhaines> 400 miles away and an entire workweek is a good excuse not to go. ;) 19:35 <Yasumoto> yeah, yeah 19:36 <Grantbow> lol 19:36 < Flannel> Alright, so... next Grantbow will give a wrap up on LWE? 19:36 <Grantbow> ok 19:36 <Grantbow> http://www.linuxworldexpo.com concluded this week 19:36 <Grantbow> I unfortunately didn't get to see all the activities and talks 19:36 <Grantbow> I met greg-g representing the Creative Commons at his booth 19:37 <Grantbow> Ed Cherlin with the OLPC project had a booth. He runs a San Francisco SIG. 19:37 <Grantbow> James of the www.accra.org installed *** 700 *** computers with Ubuntu in a recycling effort 19:37 <Grantbow> cosponsored with Untangle, quite a site. 19:38 <Grantbow> On the last day was the Ubucon. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Ubucon/SanFrancisco 19:38 < nhaines> Ooh, how was that? 19:38 <Grantbow> I caught the tail end and saw Fabina Rodriguez from the Montreal support office give a general Ubuntu talk. 19:39 <Grantbow> I talked with John Mark Walker, the Ubucon organizer 19:39 <Grantbow> he wasn't aware of our activities, unfortunately. 19:39 < Flannel> What do you mean? 19:40 <Yasumoto> Grantbow: yeah, I just managed to email him about us, I was bummed we didn't hear from him :( 19:40 <Yasumoto> (before Ubucon, that is) 19:40 <Grantbow> John had lost track of the California LoCo activities when the older group near San Francisco stopped organizing local things. 19:40 <Grantbow> I mentioned our IRC meetings. I was hoping he might show up here tonight. Maybe next time. 19:41 <Grantbow> Yasumoto: ok, thanks for trying. 19:41 <Grantbow> Unfortunately I was a bit busy so I didn't see all that much of the show and none of the conference sessions. 19:42 <Grantbow> Next year I'll be more prepared. 19:42 <Yasumoto> we live and learn, that's for sure 19:42 <Yasumoto> Grantbow: thanks for being there :) 19:43 <Grantbow> Flannel: unless there's anything else, do you want to talk about the bugjam? 19:44 <Grantbow> or anyone else that was there 19:44 < Flannel> Grantbow: If you're done, yeah, we'll talk about the bug jam 19:44 < nhaines> The bug jam was awesome.
