As you may or may not be aware, the very first LugRadio Live USA in 2008 is taking place at The Metreon in San Francisco on the 12th and 13th April 2008, and will provide the unique atmosphere of the UK event, but in glorious San Francisco. LugRadio Live has developed a strong reputation for providing a range of topics about free software, Open Source, digital rights, technology and more, a compelling list of speakers, exhibitors and birds of a feather sessions, and wrapping it all in a unique, fun, loose, social and inclusive event, which is often described as combining the atmosphere of a rock concert and a computer conference.

At LugRadio Live USA 2008 we plan on bring this unique atmosphere to the USA, and inviting around 30 speakers, over 20 exhibitors, an eclectic range of BOF sessions, and plenty of additional sessions such as our debate discussion panel, a showcase of five minute talks, tech demos, and of course a live recording of LugRadio in front of an audience. We expect around 500 - 700 attendees to the event.

LugRadio Live in the UK has developed a strong reputation for being 'the' community event in the UK, and we are looking to bring this to USA.  

Obviously as a community event we'd like the local Linux community involved  which means you! Take a look at http://lugradio.org/live/USA2008/ for more details and if you fancy speaking, or running a BOF session get in touch at show at lugradio.org

Alternatively if you just want to come along and enjoy the show we'd love to see you there and there will be a pre-event party on the Friday night and a main party on the Saturday night to which all attendees are of course invited.
