Ubuntu Live and OSCON

Jul 22, 2007

About 2 months ago, I wrote that I was heading to Portland for the O’Reilly Open Source Conference. It turns out that O’Reilly is also hosting another conference about Ubuntu, a very popular Linux distro.

When I signed up for OSCON, I elected to go to the tutorials, which consists for 4 tutorials spanned across 2 days. Well, 2 of the 4 tutorials I signed up for were canceled. Needless to say, I’m pretty bummed out. But O’Reilly was nice enough to get me into the Ubuntu Live Sunday, July 22nd, 2007.

So, here’s the plan thus far for the first part of the week:
