The State of FOSS in Utah


PLUG Logo

Clint Savage was the speaker at tonight's PLUG meeting. Clint is the founder of the Utah Open Source Foundation. UTOSF was the power behind the recent Utah Open Source Conference.

Clint ran down a long list of activities that UTOSF is sponsoring to promote open source in Utah. Some of the most promising, IMO, were promoting open source at local colleges and universities and open source family day. BYU's UUG sponsors Linux install fests, but I'm generally disappointed by the lack of interest in open source among CS students.

They mentioned the Home Runs in IT Conference that will be held at the Open Source Technology Center at Novell on Dec 6th. I'm flying home from San Jose the morning of the 6th from IIW to speak at noon. Sounds like it will be a good event.
