LugRadio Live 2006 This Weekend 25

mrBen writes "This weekend (22nd & 23rd July) sees the 2nd LugRadio Live event, bringing together a huge number of top quality speakers (including Mark Shuttleworth (Canonical), Simon Phipps (Sun), Stephen Lamb (Microsoft), Ted Haegar (Novell)), exhibitors (including Ubuntu, OpenSolaris, MythTV, Joomla, Bytemark) and a slew of lightning talks and BOF (Birds of a Feather) sessions. Last year's event gathered 250 geeks from all over the world to Wolverhampton — this year's event is twice as long and twice as big, and promises to be the community event of the year."

    I'm sure this will go over well with the LUG []s at UCSC and other, similar schools.
  • Im going. been looking forward to it.
    Havnt prebooked ticket though, hope the posting on slashdot wont get too many people there or I wont get in!
  • For those of you interested in Linux, google your city Linux. They are a lot like the computer (A2,C64/Atari) clubs from the 70's/80's. You meet good poeple and you will learn something new. Knowledge == Power.

      Note that this is LugRadio Live - it's an annual conference organised by the LugRadio podcast (, although a good number of LUG members from around the world will be attending (eg theres a good contingent going from Scotlug).

      Mind you - you will meet good people and learn something new :) And there will probably be a large quantity of beer consumed.

      YMMV - The local LUG here is worthless, a bunch of Micro$oft bashers that get together and BS for a Saturday afternoon. Zero motivation to have installfests, projects to promote Open Source/Linux, or even have organized meetings. They do have fun flaming people on their mailing list though. :(

      It is quite a disappointment compared to the LUG I moved away from. Installfests twice a year, active in the community, active & on topic mailing list, well designed web site full of information, social events afte
  • Clan LugRadio ( []) are providing LAN gaming and I have 4-player Gauntlet on my xmame ( []) cabinet. Hope to see many old and new friends there. BTW: LugRadio Live 2006 deserves to be front page news!

    I'm looking forward to the special blend of geeky chat with some friends I've met online, learning new stuff from the developers of the products I use every day, beer, a few games of Enemy Territory [], listening in on a recording of LUGRadio [] and generally having a bit of a laugh with some friends. I created [] a natty PDF [] which shows what's on in an easily digestable form. Almost time to print out and highlight!
  • I went to the last LinuxWorld Expo in London. I didn't go to LRL2005, but I'm off this time. From what I'm told it's a lot less corporate, and much more fun. I hope so!
  • Trust them to strike right when I'm travelling down. []
  • 2600 is having H.O.P.E this weekend too, Should I have to go the UK for a Linux conference when there is a hacker conference in New York?
