At this weekend's Southern California Linux Expo, keynote speaker Tarus Balog presented an inspiring talk on how he has been able to create a successful services company supporting the open source network management application platform OpenNMS. If you were unable to make the conference, the talk is available online and is worth checking out.

I live in LA. I spend as much in gas as I would on a montly metrolink pass. Also my 3 hour daily commute would go up to around 6 hours.

Not to mention needing to wait for my roommate to come pick me up 2-3 times a week after work holds me late and I miss my bus/train.

I'd be happy to take public transit if it saved me anything.

I know a lot of people who refuse to see movies in the theater anymore, just cause of how bad it is to deal with rude audience members; especially for a movie like Watchmen that we actually care about. I'll be buying the DVD to show my support, but I won't punish myself with another 2 hours of text messaging teens and crying babies.
