For anyone out in Southern California next week - I'll be at SCaLE 16x (Southern California Linux Expo) with a bunch of other creative-nerds where we're holding the first Libre Graphics track at the event!
If you're anywhere near there - COME JOIN US! Our track is on Friday, and I'll be manning the booth with a few others (@ted for instance).
You'll be able to see my talk about "Why the GIMP Team Obviously Hates You". ;)
