Big weekend in Utah

It’s the last day flurry around here as we get ready for Utah Open Source Conference (UTOSC) this weekend.

On Wednesday, my girls and Larry and his girl are catching a train in Emeryville, CA.  It’s a 19 hour journey to Salt Lake City, which seems long but is only 7 more hours each way than driving without all the downsides of driving.  Also, it should be an awesomely beautiful ride, even at night.  We’ll get a chance to finish our presentations, explore the train, and relax.  Also, sleeping is more comfortable than in a driving car even without a sleeper car.

If you are attending, or know anyone else who is, here a list of the talks we’re giving:

Wow, that’s a lot of stuff!

Looking forward to the train ride and the chance to meet folks at a conference that is new to me (first UTOSC for my girls and me.)

After posting this, I was reminded that Ryan Rix is doing a BoF, Fedora, FOSS, and Schools..
