Subject: [BALUG-Talk] Thu Apr 23: Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope Release Party SF

On April 23 San Francisco celebrates the release of Jaunty Jackalope,
aka Ubuntu 9.04.  This is the tenth major release of Ubuntu Linux: the
most popular flavor of the most popular free operating system ever.
Ubuntu California is hosting an all-out rumpus in the Tendernob,
featuring a lineup of old and new school electro DJs making music on
Linux, Linux robotics demonstrations courtesy of Orb SWARM, free
Jackalope CDs, Installfest, and a fat-guy-with-beard wet Linux t-shirt
contest (weather permitting).  The event will be at 835 Geary (& Larkin)
starting at 8pm.  Cash bar (including food, beer, and espresso drinks)
will be open til 2am.


Volunteers Needed!

Please let me know if you would like to volunteer to help with the
Installfest or if you can volunteer to burn 1 or 2 Jackalope CD's to
bring to the event.  As far as I know this event and the Walnut
Creek event on Friday are the only Jaunty release parties in the
Bay Area, so please feel free to forward this to other LUG lists.


STARPAUSE a.k.a. Jordan Gray is a noted San Francisco chiptune
producer and founder of the Mp3Death.US (Creative Commons) netaudio
label; many of you may remember him from his presentation at last
month's BALUG.  He performs and composes electronic music on a variety
of Linux devices, including an EeePC running Ubuntu and the
Linux-based Game Park GP2X.  STARPAUSE and his whole DJ crew will be
manning the tables all night, celebrating both Jaunty Jackalope and
the birthdays of fellow DJs Jens and Jay (aka Cyndi Looper and
Exillon).  Be sure to wish Jens and Jay a Sucka Free FELIZ CUMPLEANOS.



SWARM is a kinetic art work composed of six semi-autonomous spherical
robots (orbs) rolling under their own power. Each has a spherical
shell 30 inches in diameter: roughly thigh high to an adult.  SWARM
was commissioned for Burning Man 2007 and has since appeared at Yuri's
Night, Coachella, Maker Faire, and many other venues.  Members of the
SWARM crew will be on hand to demonstrate the Orb's internal workings,
including an embedded ARM TS-7800 board running Debian Linux to
control lights and sounds.
