Open Source and Goa

Am leaving this afternoon for Goa, to speak at two events:

On Saturday, the 20th, I am speaking twice at the GEC Linux Conference (this link may be hard to reach). This is Goa’s first Linux event, and several out-station speakers (including Naba Kumar, Gopi Garge, Mahendra M., Kartik N. and me) will be giving talks there, apart from many Goa-based speakers.

On Monday, the 22nd, I am speaking at the Open for Business [PDF] at the Hotel Mandovi – an event organised by the Open Source Forum of India and the Goa Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Other speakers are Gopi Garge, Dr.Anil Seth, Dr.Gurunandan Bhat, Arvind Yadav and Sandeep Verenkar. If you are a business or government person and are interested in how Open Source could work for you, then attend this totally non-technical, business and government oriented seminar. Contact the GCCI [Phone: +91 (832) 2224223/2422635] if you are interested in attending.

I return to Bangalore on the 23rd evening. Only one day to hit the beaches – which is on Sunday.
