Open Source is alive and well in PDX thank you

I really should stop reading the Oregonian, they do such a poor job of covering high tech and the business section is especially weak. The recent piece about OSCON moving to Silly Valley overlooked so many obvious things like the Linux Plumber's Conference next week, the Kernel Summit not to mention the Open Source technology center, Oracle office in Portland, Portland State, and Free Geek. So the loss of one conference which is mostly attended by out of town people is really no impact on the local open source infrastructure.

I think since OSDL is gone, Open Source doesn't really have a huge face in the Portland area (or the world for that matter).

The job of keeping in the news may not be well regarded. But, if you don't portray yourself as you want to, you let others portray you the way they want to.
