Back in black

Tomorrow (Tues 8th Jan) I start back at work, and I will be chewing through the email mountain. If you have emailed me in the last three weeks or so, I hope to get to it over the next few days.

In other news, I am now confirmed as the opening keynote for SCALE over in Los Angeles in February – it will be the first performance of my brand spanking new talk, and I am rather excited about it. From the website:

Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants: The Coming Of The Linux Desktop

In this brand-new presentation, Jono Bacon, Ubuntu Community Manager at Canonical shares his vision of the future of the Linux desktop community, and talks about how the desktop is growing and dealing with the incredible focus and growth that has happened to it in recent years. The talk covers the history of the Linux desktop so far, where it has broadened, what challenges it faces, how it is dealing with its sudden popularity and what the future holds, all bundled up into an amusing, anecdotal presentation that you won’t want to miss.

I am also confirmed as the so called Tech Guest Of Hour at Penguicon 6.0 in April in Troy, Michigan. That sounds like an interesting conference. :)

Oh, and I just bought Guitar Hero III for my Playstation. Rock on Tommy. Bring it on, although I can’t imagine spending enough time in front of it to get as good as this guy. Dweeb.

    Exciting. I wish I could be there, as I also go back to work. Suggestion; Forget about Guitar Hero. Bill Gates just did the same :mrgreen:
