Just reaching out to all the Linux users in the Upstate NY area (Watertown, Thousand Islands, etc) who might be intertested in starting a Linux Users Group. There was one that started about 5 years ago but it died out a while back.
Let me know if there is any interest. I would love to get one started again.
C'mon Guys!! I only had one email reply on the starting of a LUG in Watertown. Maybe everyone was busy with the nice weather but we will all be cooped up soon. We might be able to have the meetings at Westelcom.
Thanks for your reply. A few years ago a LUG was started by the folks at IMCnet. At the first meeting I met a lot of people (mainly teenagers and 20 yr olds) who had phenomenal technical skills and were very enthusiastic about Linux. The group lost momemtum for a number of reasons but I still think there is a large enough Linux/open source community up here to have a very good LUG. I just wish they would speak up so we could get something started.
If we could get a small group, say 7 to 12 people, then I would be happy to do some legwork to find a place where we could meet and hopefully have a meeting.
Perhaps you have a few friends that would be interested?
I think once it got off the ground there could be guest speakers, install fests, cluster builds, that sort of thing. But it all depends upon the membership and what everyone wants to do. I know that some of things I am interested in is gaming on linux, AMD(64bit) and Itanium computing on linux, clustering and HPC.
I would hope that group (if there ever is one) would have their own ideas and passions that would drive the LUG
