SCALE 11X: No booth, but meetup is on

Well, we’ll just have to file this under close-but-no-cigar: No one volunteered to staff the CrunchBang booth at SCALE 11X next weekend in Los Angeles, so I had to withdraw it (as mentioned before, because I work for SCALE I can’t staff it). So our next appearance will be at Linux Fest Northwest in Bellingham, Washington — and I’ll be staffing this one along with anyone who’s attending and wants to volunteer. Other shows where CrunchBang will make an appearance are listed below.

The good news is that the CrunchBang Birds of a Feather meetup is still on. The “Birds of a Feather” (obviously termed because, say it with me, “Birds of a feather flock together”) meetup is tentatively planned for Saturday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. Pacific Time. There’s a possibility that we may open this up to a Google+ hangout so others from around the CrunchBang nation and world can talk to those attending SCALE 11X. I will keep you updated on that. And if it’s not too late for him — he’s 8 hours ahead of us — corenominal has been asked to make an appearance if he’s up at 3 a.m., his time.

Again, looking forward to upcoming shows in North America (where I live), we have tables already scheduled for Linux Fest Northwest in Bellingham, Wash., in April and Texas Linux Fest in Austin, Texas, at the end of May (as well as possibly having a table at the inaugural Montana Linux Fest in June at Montana State University — an event that’s still in the planning stages). I’ll be available to staff these tables, and I welcome CrunchBang users who are attending to stop by and help out.

If you’re going to one of these shows and you think you can put in some time at the table, e-mail me at lcafiero-at-lavabit-dot-com.
