I own a pair of lace-up leather pants (i.e., trousers, thanks) but, while it helps, the costume doesn’t make the rock star.
The Debian and Ubuntu teams that I’m on are (in a weird, dysfunctional way) slightly like rock bands. We have the long hair. We have the late nights. We have the binge drinking. Putting out a release is a bit like putting out a album.
So, to round it off, I’ve decided to go on tour. It’s a pretty wimpy tour but it’s a start. After some time locked in the studio, I’m out to promote Ubuntu’s newly released "Hoary Hedgehog" and to play a few tracks from Debian’s upcoming "Sarge" offering.
The two next stops include:
- On Sunday April 10, I’ll be rocking out with the Southern Connecticut Open Source User Group in New Haven, CT. I’ll talk about Ubuntu, the latest release, and the derivation process in relation to Debian. The event will be held at Innovation Software and feel free to drop by.
- On Monday April 11, I’ll be playing at the The Northern New Jersey Linux Meetup in Fort Lee, NJ. You should reserve a spot on that web page if you plan on attending.
Both events promise to be relatively laid-back with manageably-sized groups that should leave enough time and space for questions, chatting, food and drink. I’ll bring key fingerprints if anyone wants to trade keys while I’m there.
