[via mod_pubsub] Here's yet another Open Source conference, this time focused on business. There's a nice list of speakers, but no topics...

One tidbit of interesting information from the site. Some of you will remember my OSCON notes and my admiration for Robert Lefkowitz. It appears that the uncertainty around his employment situation has settled. He's now "Director, Open Source, AT&T Wireless". Which makes me kind of wonder, what exactly are they doing with open source at AT&T Wireless? After all, they're my current cellular carrier...

Eclipse is having its own convention. When you look at how many of the presentations are by IBM'ers, you have to wonder how successful Eclipse has been at attracting outside developers to the Eclipse core.

Mark Ashworth, the speaker last night, was running Suse, but he mentioned that more and more of his friends are running Debian. I run Debian for the package quality, not the politics, but it is true that there's no company behind Debian that will suddenly change the nature of the distribution.

The uptime on the machine that is {www,mail}.sauria.com is 271 days. It would have been longer, but I had to replace the UPS. This machine is regularly updated to Debian unstable. If you are less adventurous, you could set your apt sources list to use testing.
