As a distro guy, I am always very interested in ways to encourage open source projects to work together. FOSSCamp is designed to do just that. I would encourage anyone in the Boston area, or willing to visit the fine city of Boston to come and hang out for a couple days (Oct 27-28).
I am sure there will be lots of good times, and great topics discussed. I am hoping to talk about desktop technologies, package/systems management, and online desktop possibilities.
