Here there be lawyers.

Over the past year-and-some-change, I’ve spent quite a bit of time working with Red Hat Legal on the treatment of Fedora trademarks in our community. In particular, Pam Chestek, one of the very small handful people I work with who’s been at Red Hat for a shorter time than I, …

FUDCon Toronto report.

There have already been plenty of posts about all the good stuff that happened at FUDCon Toronto 2009, so just repeating the same details would seem like gilding the lily. Easily over 200 attendees as of Day 1, and we had other people showing up over the weekend, and students …

Traveling.

In just a few minutes, I’m leaving for the airport to catch a plane through Cincinnati to Toronto. I should touch down at YYZ at around 3:45pm, and hopefully I’ll be meeting some other Fedora friends at the airport and we’ll share a taxi to the hotel. Hopefully we should …

FUDCon signups.

FUDBus update.

Update on the bus to FUDCon Toronto 2009: The vendor we’re working with just purchased a coach for their fleet (only 200K miles, which in the travel industry is practically new) which is expected to arrive in their shop for inspection next week. The bus is a 36-seater, and includes …
