Tomorrow's the first public meeting of the group organizing a regional,
community-run open source conference to replace OSCON. I realize this
isn't much notice, but they'll have many more meetings in the future.
Please subscribe to their blog's feed for future meeting announcements
and information. Thanks!

Open Source Bridge will be a completely volunteer-run, community
effort to connect developers working with open source.
Open Source Bridge will bring together the diverse tech communities
of the greater Portland area and showcase our unique and thriving
open source environment. We will show how well Portland does open
source and share our best practices for development, community and
connectedness with the rest of the world.
We're kicking things off with a town hall discussion and planning
meeting on October 30th, 7:30pm at CubeSpace (located at 622 SE
Grand Avenue in Portland). We'll talk about overall goals for the
conference, then break into small working groups to start tackling
the event planning needs. If you can, bring an audio or video
recorder to help document the discussion.
Please let us know if you can attend. If October 30 doesn't work for
you, let us know as we will be having a second meeting on the
west-side. We'd very much like to have your participation in making
this conference a fun, educational experience.
