Picn*x 15 Announcement

The Picn*x 15 Committee cordially invites all the friends of open source software to a picnic to be held Saturday August 19, 2006 from 11AM - 5PM at Sunnyvale's Baylands Park.  This years theme celebrates the tremendous progress made by the open source community over the last fifteen years, including, but not limited to, FreeBSD, GNU, Apache, MySQL, PERL, Python, PHP, OpenOffice, GIMP, and of course Linux.  There are over 70,000 open source projects. We truly live in a new world.

August 19 is the Saturday following the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in San Francisco.   The Picn*x 15 Committee encourages Conference attendees to stay over for the picnic.  A large out-of-town turnout is expected since this year's Expo celebrates the 15th anniversary of Linux.  Early registration is advised.

For your inner geek, the picnic has activities like installing and troubleshooting software on your laptop, experimenting with wireless communication, and visits to local hardware stores.  For your inner child there is acoustic music, Frisbee, soccer, bocce ball, softball, volleyball and juggling. 

Participating organizations include: BayLISA, The Bay Area Large Installation System Administrators; The Linux User Group of Davis; The South Bay Community Network; The Silicon Valley Linux User Group; and The Silicon Valley Wireless Users and Experimenters.

The picnic is free to attendees, but reservations are required.  Many thanks to our sponsors, including Mirapoint, Raw Bandwidth, BayLISA, and Splunk.
