Lococast invading Ohio Linuxfest September 9-11

Lococast takes to the road!

Ohio Linuxfest here we come!

We're all signed up and ready to go. Lococast will be doing on location recording at Ohio Linuxfest again this year. Only this time, we're officially a sponsor and getting a nice shiny table in the main area to setup at. So we'll be working on getting some great clips of some of the great speakers and attendees of the conference.

The official conference is September 9-11. Friday has an array of events you can get involved with. The main thrust of the conference is on Saturday followed by a diversity workshop and LPI exames on Sunday. We'll be down there from some time Friday through Saturday and heading back Sunday.

Why should I go?

Did I mention this little open source conference holds over one thousand people?! Yep, it's a gathering alright. Did I mention there are four tracks and an Open Source Solutions stage? We like to call that, the content. Did I also mention that we're going to be there? You should just go.

But it's too late to go...

Nonsense, I actually just got my hotel room this very day. There's still time to get a reservation, and get your butt to Columbus.

Rick, it's got to be expensive to go then, surely!

Hogwash, if you register now, there's no cost to attend. However, if you're super awesome (and all Lococast listeners are of course) there's a supporter package for $65. You get fed and a t-shirt as part of that bundle. How could you go wrong?

I'm still not convinced Rick...

Then go check out the show we did last year. Oh that's right, we sat down with the president of System 76. How awesome is that!

Lococast: Submit your Unity questions here!

We need your help. Craig and I have spoken our concerns about what Unity means to the future of Ubuntu. Thursday March 24th, we'll be interviewing Jason Smith of Canonical who works on the Unity team. We'd like to know what you'd ask him if you got a chance.

  • How close are things to planned functionality for Natty?
  • What kind of testing is going on behind the scenes?
  • What types of users is Canonical targeting as the average Unity user?

Let us know what you'd like us to ask. Submit your question here in the comments or email the question to feedback@lococast.net

Rick’s Rant Ep 6: Something for the builders out there

Rick's Rants Episode #6: Something for the builders

With all this focus on making desktop linux something for the mass market, is there a chance that we end up removing the great things that drew us to the platform as users/developers? Is it possible to have a product that wins with the mass market as well as the people that there building and developing things? Listen/watch the rant and let me know what you think. Do we need something different for Ubuntu users? What would an "Ubuntu Developer Edition" look like in your mind?

Rick's Rants Episode #5: If you love it, put a ring on it

I keep seeing people that don't get that you can mix money and FLOSS. In fact, if you appreciate the work that these great people creating amazing tools and programs at all, $$ will of course get involved. Time to rant on these people that don't get it and a personal challenge from me to you. Put $5 up for grabs every month, come on, I double dog dare ya!
