If you know someone who is looking for a Free Software job in town, please help them get employed.

Congrats to SCaLE for 9x

SCaLE 9x was a great event. There were lots of great talks, a fun hallway track and even an added game night. Lots of good stuff. Not only did they do all that, but they did it in a new location.

The minutes from the post-event meeting show that 9x had a 20% attendance increase and was cash positive. It also had , an expo floor that spilled out into another room.
