Want to go to LinuxCon for free? Better act fast
As I’ve mentioned a couple of times, Portland will be hosting the inaugural LinuxCon in a few weeks. Linux Plumbers Conf 2009 will be held in Portland the same week. And then there’s those Fake Linus Torvalds folks.
That’s a lot of Linux. And what’s one of our favorite things about Linux—and for that matter open source in general? That’s right, for people with knowhow, it’s a great way to adopt great technology for little to no cost. If only that same knowhow could get you into LinuxCon with little to no cost.
Well, now it can. But you have to act fast.
LinuxCon has offered Silicon Florist 20 free passes to the event. Given this late date, that’s a $500 value to you, my friend. Even if you want to take it at the early bird value, it’s still worth $300.
So they’re not just going to hand that free pass to you. First, you have to be fast. Second, you have to be right. Right about what you ask? Riddle me this, you little Tux groupie you: What date (month/day/year) did Linus originally post the OS on the Internet?
What’s that? You’ve got it already? Oh.
Well okay! Get moving. Send your response to email@example.com.
The first 20 people to send an email to the address above with the correct answer will get a free pass to LinuxCon. It’s just that easy.
Why are you still reading? Ten people have probably already answered the question already. 11. Go! Scoot!
