The Expo is heald at the Westin LAX. http://www.socallinuxexpo.org/scale8x/ ; For those interested in the current status of Kubuntu Documentation, visit the TODO page on the wiki: https://wiki.kubuntu.org/Kubuntu/Documentation/Lucid ; If any of you were having problems joining the new deviantArt group, the issues have been fixed now. Go here to join: http://ubuntu-artists.deviantart.com/ ; 15 game-changing Linux moments of the decade – http://www.techradar.com/news/software/operating-systems/15-game-changing-linux-moments-of-the-decade-659030 ; For those of you who have read the recent Slashdot article announcing Ubuntu’s new membership programme, this is clearly a mistake. Ubuntu has had the concept of membership for many years, helping us to identify those who have made a significant and sustained contribution. This is nothing new and nothing is changing. More information on Ubuntu Membership can be found here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Membership ; Netbook Speculation http://www.thevarguy.com/2010/01/06/netbook-speculation-lenovo-dell-hp-and-linux/ ; Ubuntu Netbook Remix vs Moblin http://www.tuxradar.com/content/ubuntu-netbook-remix-vs-moblin ; J.A. Watson, ZDNet UK, reviews with screen shots some of the most popular Netbook-centric Linux distributions. http://community.zdnet.co.uk/blog/0,1000000567,10014719o-2000498448b,00.htm

scott_ev then asked xHans for any PLUG and class announcements: PLUG Security Hackfest Tuesday night. http://PLUG.phoenix.az.us/security ; PLUG East Side meeting Thursday night. Probably a presentation on remind, which is a really cool calendaring command line app. http://PLUG.phoenix.az.us/node/157
