North by (Linux Fest) Northwest

lfnw-badgeToward the end of this week — well, Thursday to be exact — I’ll be loading up the car with a few laptops, about 100 pieces of CrunchBang media (DVDs, not CDs), a paper #! banner, my daughter and her equipment and we’ll head north to Linux Fest Northwest in Bellingham, Washington on April 27-28.

The question now is whether I can get to Corvallis, Oregon, in a day and maybe stop in to visit Lance Albertson and the folks at the Oregon State University Open Source Lab on Friday morning . . . .

15943044As for CrunchBang’s presence at LinuxFest Northwest, we’ll have a booth and I’ll have help staffing the booth (if it’s not too much of an embarrassment to him, a big “thanks” goes out to xoraxiom, a CrunchBanger who’ll also be attending LFNW, and he gets recognition here for help in the booth). We also have a Birds of a Feather gathering scheduled for Saturday afternoon — note to corenominal, it’s 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time, so if you’re around on Saturday around 9:30 your time and we can ping you, your presence is requested — and I speak on Sunday at 11 a.m. on “Intro to CrunchBang.”

Last year, flying the CrunchBang flag was quite successful, as I noted here. Many were surprised that we had a booth, some had never heard of CrunchBang (heresy!) and others were glad to see us there. We even got a couple of new users who tried CrunchBang and liked it. Now if I can get another interview on Hacker Public Radio, we’ll be all set.
