OSW: Free Culture Carleton

This is posted from the OSW mailing list, with a few edits for readability. Yes, I’m confirming that Free Culture Carleton will be involved in the May 14th [OSW event. I’ll give details about our presentation(s) on the wiki. I’m interested in doing a talk about Creative Commons, self-publishing media, and the iCommons summit. Someone I know may do a presentation on Linux audio software. Please pass the wiki password to me and I will put the details up there.

April Meeting

Time for another meeting. This will probably be our last meeting at Altera, as Kelly will be finishing up there in mid May. I’ll have to look for a new location, so it may be a Tim Hortons for a while and then possibly a community center or some such ilk. As for topics, how about data center practices? I’ve been attempting to trace cabling on and off for the past couple of weeks and it drove home how much better BNR had managed their data centers.

Solaris 10 zones and Dtrace

They provide a very good introduction and usable examples you can test right away, instead of plowing your way through Sun’s documentation: Zones Dtrace examples

Open Source Weekend.

This year Open Source Weekend (OSW) is planning an open source fun day on May 14, following BSDcan. We will have a full weekend event in the fall, in conjunction with a national event. The May 14th OSW event will be in the form of a small number of 1-hour talks, and ongoing 20-minute workshops/demos throughout the day. If you have a neat open source hack, and would like to show and tell others about it we’d like to hear from you.
