I’m excited for our next Linux Night on Tuesday March 13th at 7 pm. They have been popular in the past, and if the turnout at this one is big enough we might make it a monthly event. Compared to some of the experts around here, I’m still a Linux n00b, although hanging around this crowd has made me into a total open source convert. I even started installing new distros for fun. I’m starting to think it might be a problem…

One thing I love about living in Albuquerque is being part of an active and engaged tech community. I try to keep an ear to the ground for upcoming interesting and exciting events. This one sounds particularly good:
WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other. WordCamps are open to WordPress.com and WordPress.org users alike.
We use WordPress for our blog and we’re big fans! It is going to be held at the Albuquerque
Sheraton Airport Friday – Sunday, September 16 – 18, 2011. You can visit the Albuquerque Wordcamp website for more info. I’m sure it will be great!

Great BBC documentary from 1979 following the development of recorded music, from the earliest barrel organs through to analogue synthesizers and electronic music. As an added bonus for my fellow Whovians, there are a couple of segments showcasing the technology behind the making Doctor Who’s sound effects and theme song! Part 1, shown above has some great footage of early player pianos; those of you who have followed us for a while know we are fans of the player piano. Links to the rest: Part 2 Part 3 Part 4
