SILUG: Ohio Linux Fest

The Ohio LinuxFest 2006 is rapidly approaching, and we're trying to
get the word out. The LinuxFest is a free, annual conference for the
Linux and open source community. This year's LinuxFest takes place
on Saturday, September 30 in Columbus, Ohio at the Greater Columbus
Convention Center. We're hoping you will help us get the word out to
your group, so we can help share the fun with as many free and open
source software enthusiasts as possible.

This year, we're going to have some really interesting speakers --
Jon 'maddog' Hall of Linux International, Jeff Waugh of GNOME and
Ubuntu fame, Chris DiBona from Google, Ubuntu member Jorge Castro,
MySQL's Jay Pipes, and many others. The full list of speakers is
available at http://ohiolinux.org/speakers.html.

Registration for the Ohio LinuxFest is free for presentations, exhibit
floor, and for the conference after-party. By popular demand, an All
Conference Pass is available for the first time this year, which will
help offset the cost of the LinuxFest.

The All Conference Pass is $65, and pass-holders are entitled to
lunch on the day of the conference, drink tickets for the conference
after-party, vendor swag, access to the conference suite at the Holiday
Inn, and a limited edition Ohio LinuxFest t-shirt. The deadline
for registration is Friday, September 22. Attendees can sign up at
