Today is the first day of linux.conf.au, the biggest free software conference in Australia and generally regarded as one of the better conferences of its type in the world. There's a bunch of people I know in town for the event, including Dean Wilson, Kim and Janet Hawtin and Richard Cohen (who's staying with us for the duration).
Unfortunately due to work I can't make the conference. It's just too costly to take the time off work as a contractor. I'll be going to the Open Day on Thursday afternoon though.
Hopefully will meet up with a bunch of the attendees for a beer or twelve on Thursday.
