It's my understanding that the Upstate Carolina Users Group (UCLUG)
and other local LUGs in Charlotte and Georgia have started to put
their collective heads together to try and organize a Southeast
LinuxFest, much in the same vein as the Ohio Linux Fest (which is a
great Linux conference). I think the idea is to create a
community-driven event similar to OLF. They have started a wiki:
There is also an IRC channel on freenode: #southeastlinuxfest and
they are scheduling meetings at 9pm on Tuesdays.
Ever since the Atlanta Linux Showcase ceased, I have always hoped
there would be another great Linux conference here in the Southeast.
It seems that given the number of prominent Linux/FOSS organizations
and companies here in the Triangle, it would only be natural to have a
local conference like OLF. Hopefully, this new effort will get off
the ground and succeed. I think it would be great if TriLUG took an
active role in this conference as well.
Anyway, I just thought I would pass it along.
