Tokyo Linux User Group 031310

There was an interesting Tokyo Linux User Group Meeting yesterday. We did an Open Space meeting (info here, here, here) to have a free-flowing discussion about the community and what we want to do this year. I took some notes from the conversation and posted them to the list (subscribe here). Basically, we kicked around ideas for technical presentations and how we can structure meetings to enable more types of talks. Also, we want to grow the group, so we’d like to reach out to other communities in Tokyo (and around the world, actually) to see if we can enable some new connections. That’s the part I’m most interested in, and that’ll be my focus as the group’s new vice president (we did a little election today, thanks, guys!). I’m really excited about this. I’ve been participating in TLUG for a few years now, and I want to do a lot more to help the community grow. I missed the nomikai after the meeting because I was up pretty much the entire night before, but I’ll make the next one for sure. Here are some images from the meeting:

Tokyo Linux User Group: 15th Anniversary Party

The Tokyo Linux User Group will be celebrating 15 years of Linux in Tokyo in a couple of weeks. I`ll be there. If you want to go, see the info here. I have been participating in TLUG for over two years now, and I have learned a great deal -- not only about Linux but also about the FOSS community in Tokyo. And, actually, the Linux community in Tokyo is international, so you are always meeting people from not only here but from all over the place. In any given meeting, you could easily have conversations with guys from a dozen countries. Really interesting group. Friendly. Open. Technical. Diverse.

Sam Loves Linus

I skimmed Fortune's cover story (June 21st issue) on IBM today. From page 88 or so to 92 (a bunch of ads separate the paragraph in question) you'll find a nice description of Sam Palmisano's "elegant and spacious" conference room with "picture windows [showing] panoramic views of forests and hills." Sounds like a lovely place to work, eh? (It snows there in the winter, so I'm glad I'm in San Francisco.)

Anyway, here's where it gets interesting: the only photograph in the room -- prominently displayed -- is Sam with a smiling Linus Torvalds. That's it? Rolling hills and forests and Sam and Linus? Well, you gotta give him credit ... that's focus for ya. Maybe it was a set up for the Fortune reporter to notice and write about. I don't think so, though. I never doubted IBM's commitment to Linux. And still don't.
