LinuxWorld in New York City -- 21-24 January 2003

Mike Angelo -- 19 January 2003 (C)

IDG's LinuxWorld is a computer show well worth attending -- and the price is right if you register before the show starts. The Exhibits Pass is free if you register on or before 20 January 2003. On-site from 21 to 24 January 2003, the LinuxWorld Exhibits Pass is $30.

The Exhibits Pass gets you into the:

  • Keynotes and Feature Presentations
  • Birds of a Feather Meetings
  • Taste of Linux Series
  • Exhibit Floor (Jan 22 - 24)

There also is an assortment of LinuxWorld Conference Packages starting at $225. Conferences run from 21 to 24 January 2003. LinuxWorld exhibits run from 22 to 24 January 2003.

You can register for the free Exhibit Pass or the not-free Conference Packages on-line (links below) or by calling 1-800-657-1474.

Here is the list of the January 2003 LinuxWorld conference tracks:

  • Managing Linux: Real SysAdmin from the Trenches
  • Business/Emerging Technologies
  • Developer Issues
  • Security Issues
  • Linux in Government/Defense
  • Linux in Telco/Communications

Why You Should Attend LinuxWorld Expo

Whether you are an experienced Linux user, Linux newbie, a Mac user, a Windows user, IT/IS professional, corporate buyer, or corporate executive and you are in the Northeastern United States, you ought to check out the January 2003 LinuxWorld Expo. It's at the Javits Center in New York City. If you are on the U.S. West Coast, there will be a LinuxWorld Expo at the Moscone Center in San Francisco in August 2003.

If you are not a Linux user or not Linux literate, the LinuxWorld Expo is a great place to see Linux and Open Source Software in action first hand -- demonstrated by the people and companies that publish the Linux distributions, create Linux and Open Source software, and make the computers upon which Linux runs. If you are a Linux evangelist or Linux user, drag some of your Mac or Windows user friends over to LinuxWorld Expo and knock their socks off.

Here are some other ideas for all of you readers that want to help get more people and organizations to use Linux and Open Source software. Call the members of your local school board and the school district's business manager. Invite them to go along with you to the LinuxWorld Expo. Let them see how much Linux can do and how well it can do it -- and for how much less money than Windows can do it. Let them talk dollars and Linux sense with the exhibitors.

There is no reason why every school system in the United States should not be a Linux school system rather than a Mac or Windows school system -- if for no other reason than it would save U.S taxpayers millions of dollars every year. (Actually if you think about it, every school system in the world should be a Linux school system.)

There is another important reason for getting schools to adopt Linux as their OS. The students will learn to use Linux and Linux software at school. Once they learn how to use Linux and Linux software, they likely will install Linux on their home computers.

Speaking of taxpayers, government organizations, and Linux, call the mayor and council of your town or your county commissioners. Drag them along to LinuxWorld too. If you have the guts or the clout, then drag your governor, state representative, or U.S. Congress-person to LinuxWorld also.

There is no reason why every government unit in the United States should not be a Linux government unit rather than a Mac or Windows government unit -- if for no other reason than it would save U.S taxpayers millions of dollars every year.

Some of these suggestions might sound somewhat over-ambitious. But what the heck, no guts no glory. You never know -- it might work. The underlying point here is that a good way to show people the benefits of Linux and Open Source software is to take them along to the LinuxWorld Expo. Then let the exhibitors there do their things and show the people you invite to LinuxWorld just how great Linux and Open Source software are and how much money they can save by using Linux and Open Source software.

If you or some of these government folks you invite to LinuxWorld want to spring for a conference package there is a "Linux in Government/Defense" conference track.

More Information About LinuxWorld Expo

The LinuxWorld Web site is a little cumbersome to navigate. However, if you download the LinuxWorld brochure you should be able to find lots of additional information about LinuxWorld. There is a complete list of conferences, tutorials, keynote addresses, and other events in the brochure.

You can check the LinuxWorld Packages, Pricing & Deadlines page for registration details.
