I'll be in Phoenix, Arizona (USA) this weekend attending ABLEconf which is a local F/OSS event that is aiming to increase awareness and use of F/OSS in Arizona. I'll be trying out a new presentation there (something I often do at smaller events) that shares what KDE is doing right now from the lens of fulfilling expectations when it comes to user experience.
If you're in the area, please come check it out. I'm sure we'll have a bunch of fun, or at least some interesting discussions. Besides ABLEconfg itself, I fly in on Friday and leave on Monday, which currently leaves me with a Friday evening and all day Sunday free. If you'd like to meet up then, drop me a note by email.
I used to do quite a few small local shows (including some that have grown to be less small these days :) and I'd like to get back to doing some of those again. I'll certainly be tooling around the Americas more again now that KDE e.V. board duties aren't pulling me over to Europe so often. If you are involved with a good event in the Americas that I should be at to spread the KDE message, give me a shout. (Preferably well in advance of the actual event. :)
(See, I can write short blog entries!)
