HLUG Special Event February 1st with Peter Salus
Monday, January 16 2006 @ 10:02 AM EST

For those of you near Hamilton, Canada, or those who like to travel, here's some news of an event you might like to attend. Peter Salus, Bob Young, owner of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, digital publishing, founder of The Center for the Public Domain, and co-founder of Red Hat Software, and EFF's Policy Coordinator, Americas, Ren Bucholz will be the guests at the Hamilton Linux User Group on February 1st. The topic of the panel discussion will be Linux v. SCO and the relevant freedom issues and legalities.

The free event will take place from 7-10 PM in the Hamilton Room of the Hamilton Public Library (Main branch) at 55 York Street (next to the Farmers Market). The Hamilton Room is on the west side of the main lobby. Here's a map. The sponsor of the evening is FibreWired Hamilton, which will provide refreshments.

It sounds like a great evening. I confess I always wanted to meet Bob Young. He was supposed to be at a conference I attended once, and then at the last minute, he couldn't go, and I was really disappointed. I think is an intriguing idea. I like it when people see what the Internet makes possible and then act on that knowledge. And I've never met Peter Salus in person, which is how it is in Internet publishing, but that would be so nice too. And I am grateful to EFF for the work they do to protect bloggers, among other things, so in short, I wish I could be there. The topic of the event is something I'm mightily interested in too, as you know. I realize many of you will feel the same way and actually can go, and that's why I'm letting you know about it, so you can make arrangements.

Bob Young spoke a few years ago on a panel at Strictly Business in Minneapolis.
I was having coffee with a friend and saw Bob walking by us and said hello to
him. He stopped and chatted for a few minutes. He was a really gracious person.
He was hilarious at the conference. He was talking open source with Microsoft,
Sun, Oracle and I think Gartner group hosted the event. It was fun to listen to

I have written to the organizers, asking permission to record the evening. If I get that, I'll host the MP3 recordings on my web provider and link to them here.

Hi All,

The original announcement of this event is at HLUG.

You'll notice that there aren't any SCO employees on the list. If you think that will make the panel discussion one-sided, this will be your chance to even it up a bit. Submit your questions to the panel for next Wednesday. You can submit your questions by replying to this thread, by replying to the email of the organizers in the link above, or by email to me at panel at weait com

If any of the SCO employees, executives, lawyers, etc. would like to submit a question they should feel free to do so. If they would like to make a statement that would be fine, too. In that case it will be subject to identity verification by way of a phone call to your office.

All submissions should include your contact information (in case an immediate response is not possible) whether you would like to have your question attributed to your name, your nym, or anonymous.
