Penguicon 2015 Call for Talks - Ahuka | 2014-10-23

I am the coordinator for the Tech Track at Penguicon 2015, which is a combined FOSS/Science Fiction convention held every spring in the Metro-Detroit area. The 2015 event will happen April 24-26 at the Westin Hotel in Southfield, MI. The theme for the upcoming year's event is Biotechnology and medicine, looking at how technology is affecting our health and life. But we want a lot of different talks as well, so I will be happy to accept proposals that look at things like cloud computing, security, hardware hacks, and anything else that would be of interest to geeks and hackers.

Penguicon 2014 - Ahuka | 2014-06-09

Show notes: In late fall 2013 I became involved in the Penguicon convention, which combines Open Source technology with Science Fiction to create something that I believe to be unique. I ended up taking responsibility for organizing the Tech Track, and we ended up with around 70 hours of programming. I recap some of the highlights of my own personal experience of this event, both as a participant and as an organizer.
