If you are in or around Chicago tomorrow, Friday the 4th and Saturday the 5th, the University of Illinois at Chicago is holding their 2nd annual Flourish Conference. There will be speakers, hack-a-thons, a mini BarCamp, and more. Registration starts at 9am. Tomorrows first talk is Bruce Perens followed by John ‘Maddog’ Hall. I just got wind at the panel talk tomorrow, there will be a Microsoft representative on the board taking questions. Oh boy do I feel bad for him! Anyways, if you plan on coming, try and register on the website to save you $10 at the door. If you have to pay $10, it is a decent deal considering some of the swag you might be able to walk away with as well as a continental breakfast. If I get there before you though, I will eat all of the food!
So, I hope to see you there tomorrow. If you go, just ask around for me if you don’t know who I am, that is of course if you feel like meeting up. And don’t forget your GPG keys! On Saturday I will be giving a talk on the KDE community as well as an overview of KDE 4.
