FLOSS jobs in Phoenix

The economy is strong for Free Software jobs in technology. Phoenix ( and the rest of the cities in the valley ) continues to be a hot market for FLOSS jobs. Lots of programming ( PHP, Java, C++, Perl ) jobs as well as sysadmin jobs.

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

Debian now 18

I have benefitted for more than a decade by using Debian every day. Not only do we likely all know many other people who directly use Debian every day, but we probably all benefit indirectly from Debian every day.

Thanks to Debian for 18 fantastic years.

Added list of orgs to contact for ABLEconf

At tonight's PLUG meeting I asked everyone there to help promote ABLEconf. To that end, it was requested that I post a list of organizations to contact, so I pulled the list out of last year's wiki and created a blog entry.
