Helpful hint: The answer to Number 7 is NOT me. It's David Crosby. Duh!

The FOSS Force Quiz How well do you know the people behind the different FOSS communities? Do you know the names of the people who are behind the software we use daily? Would you recognize the faces of the people who fight to keep free software free by helping enforce the GPL or by working [...] Continue reading How Well Do You Know the People of FOSS?

Whew! It was close, but my unblemished record of being rejected by #oscon remains intact. I really thought the laser light show and the human sacrifice would seal the deal. Oh well shrug

OK, so the +Korora Project's Korora 22 is the distro being used by the +Southern California Linux Expo in its Installfest this weekend at SCALE 14X. A good call -- all the Fedora goodness in an Internet-ready-out-of-the-box package -- and to be honest, as a Korora user, I really had nothing to do with the choice. I swear!

Cool, although watch out for the installer bug that can make the done button disappear. The button is still there and can be clicked, just you can't see it. Alt + d should also "click" it.

Maybe too late now but the 23 "beta" might have been a better option. Also installing from DVD can be problematic/impossible. Cheap USB sticks are better.

Anyway cool, and good luck! Hope it goes well.

Thank you, Doc Searls: This tribute to Ian Murdock in the Guardian is full of easily understandable information for non-techies about why his contributions were important.

www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/dec/31/ian-murdock-a-tribute-to-the-man-and-his-work-on-linux
Murdock’s work helped fuse an insistence on excellence with a public commitment to open, ethical software development, writes Doc Searls

So now that it's the holiday season, I have to change my desktop to "Air Santa" slam-dunking gifts to good boys and girls. If I remember correctly, thank or blame +Marco Milone for this desktop art.

<hat="SCALE_Publicity_Chair">It's both an honor and a privilege to announce that Mark Shuttleworth is the Saturday keynoter at SCALE 14X, rounding out the roster of keynote speakers. Taking questions from the press . . . Am I being sarcastic? No. Next question . . . </hat>

I took the afternoon off to see it. I laughed. I cried. I gnashed my teeth and pumped my fist in my seat. The good guys won in the end. "Trumbo" is a great film and you should all go see it.

Spotify and Google Hangout on *BSD in 2016: Is that asking too much? Shameless self-promotion: Larry the BSD Guy weighs in. :-)
