They say “birds of a feather flock together.” And from that saying comes the terms “Birds of a Feather” meetup at various Linux/FOSS shows. BoFs are places where folks with the same interest get together and talk about them, and certainly it’s a place to exchange ideas and informally discuss their shared interest without a pre-designated agenda.
A shared interest like CrunchBang, for example.
CrunchBang, along with its booth at SCALE 12X (at least not this year), will be having a Birds of a Feather, scheduled for Friday, Feb. 21, at 7 p.m. Because 7 a.m. Pacific (-8) translates to 3 a.m. Saturday morning in England, chances are that we won’t be able to raise lead developer Philip Newborough via Google Hangout, but we might just give it a try (if you’re reading, corenominal, we’d love to have you).
The BoF will introduce folks to CrunchBang and I will have live CDs burned for those who want to give it a shot, as well as my collection of live USB sticks (no, you can’t keep it, but I’ll let you run CrunchBang with it, if need be).
So if you’re going to SCALE 12X, feel free to stop in at the CrunchBang Birds of a Feather meetup.
That’s all the news for now. See you next week, if not sooner.
