Geek talking

Pinoy geek talking about everything under the sun

An afternoon with Ubuntu Linux founder, Mark Shuttleworth

I spent my entire afternoon listening to Mark Shuttleworth‘s talk on Ubuntu Linux and Open Source. Actually, I attended two sessions, first for government CIOs and another for NGOs and Educators.

The first talk was all about getting government to support Open Source and to be familiar with what Mark’s company is about. The funny thing is, I really do not know if the audience had a clue as to what he was talking about or they’re bored. They did not even ask questions, well, they did ask one and that is it. Oh well…

The second session was with educators and NGO and that was when people started asking questions. It was evident that those who are familiar with Open Source are the colleges and universities. Oh well.
