FOSS.IN/2005: Powering my urge to learn!
- Hey geeks,
I am glad that FOSS.IN/2005 with all its positives; the talks, the speakers
and the awesome BoFs, not to forget the great music, has powered my urge to
learn! and SHARE.
Last year when i had been at the Linux bangalore 2004 event at IISC, the
penguin had just bit me. This time it has taken me into its "Jadoo". LINUX
ROCKS!, infact all the free and open source softwares are cool.. Last years
event influenced me to change my domain out of proprietary software
environment and into linux, this time I aint gonna stop at just enjoying
more of it. I shall contribute to the community,influence people(geeks and
non geeks ;-)) to join and help it grow.
One of the problems that I have seen with non geeks is that they have got
used to what they have been using from long..(U know what i mean!). To
change their mindset (I actually call this people geeking!) to try something
new and much better is the real challenge. They just dont want to try.
Taking this as the challenge, I hereby have started the GEEKING and making
people try and use what is best rather than what is promoted as it is the
I have hence announced my group members in RTOSWORLD and VXWORLD (these are
my groups on Yahoo!) to try FOSS and join FOSS. Contribute to FOSS community
and help it grow!!
And this one is for the FOSS TEAM for that great event
"Once you start a working on something, don't be afraid of failure and don't
abandon it. People who work sincerely are the happiest." - Chanakya
Thanks a lot FOSS!
