This year I have the pleasure of co-chairing the Seneca Free Software and Open Source Symposium (FSOSS 2007). We've just opened the registration for this 6th edition of the event, which will run October 25-26 in Toronto. The speaker list includes many familiar names from projects such as OpenOffice.Org, OLPC, Python, Mozilla, DemocracyTV/Miro, and Creative Commons, as well as companies and organizations including IBM, SAP, Nokia, Environment Canada, and Microsoft. Check out the full details of this (very affordable!) event at http://fsoss.senecac.on.ca/
These are my first two books: X Power Tools, a thorough guide to the X Window System (O'Reilly, ISBN 9780596101954) and Fedora Linux: A Complete Guide to Red Hat's Community Distro, a practical hands-on book on Fedora (O'Reilly, ISBN 9780596526825).
Fedora Linux is also available for online reading through Safari and in downloadable PDF format from oreilly.com
