The LinuxWorld announcement mentioned in this post has officially been released. From an email I got last night:
As a valued member of our LinuxWorld conference speaker community, we wanted you to be among the first to hear of the launch of OpenSource World Conference & Expo, a new event that will focus on open source software and all things Linux. Appended below is a press release that will cross the wire tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. announcing this transition; until that time we request that you do not disseminate this information.
OpenSource World will include the key features of LinuxWorld, but will offer a strong focus on supporting and enlarging not only the Linux market, but the overarching open source technology umbrella. OpenSource World is scheduled to take place August 10-13, 2009, at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.
For more information, visit the OpenSource World website at www.opensourceworld.com.
Despite the success of smaller community events, I think there’s still a place for Linux^W OpenSource World and am glad to see IDG putting renewed effort into the event. To be honest, the show has been about more than just “Linux” for a long time now anyway.
