Next month, the Southern California Linux Expo — SCALE 12X — will be held at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport hotel. SCALE is the largest, community-run Linux/FOSS expo in North America, with over 100 exhibitors, about 95 sessions and about 2,500 attendees, according to last year’s numbers.
CrunchBang will be there. CrunchBang has held a Birds of a Feather event at the last two SCALEs and we will again at this one. I will post the details when they are confirmed. In addition, CrunchBang has available to it a table in the show — if the expo floor geography gods are with us, it will be close to, if not next to, the Debian booth.
I’ll have the DVDs burned, stickers printed, and I’ll have a #! laptop where we can make bootable USB sticks for people who have one on which to put Waldorf. As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts is what I’m hoping for is for some CrunchBang users who are attending SCALE taking shifts at the booth. Does that interest anyone out there who might be attending?
I have one volunteer so far. It would be fun if there were more. Post a comment below or e-mail me off-blog to let me know if you’re available.
