March of the Geeks – OSCON

Even in rather bohemian Portland, it is easy to find the Convention Center this week. With Ubuntu Live running for the first two days, and OSCON for the last three, all one has to do is stand on the street, look for a T-shirt with a Linux/Open Source theme (or Tenacious D for that matter) and follow them. Soon you will merge with more long haired, T-shirt wearing laptop luggers as they congregate on the site of the conference.

I haven’t been here long, but in the speaker’s room I ran into Brian Aker and there is a homemade rapid prototype machine build by RepRap as well.

Pretty cool, and looking forward to more.
