This Friday the Ohio Linux Fest kicks off in downtown Columbus and I’ll be there! It is my first Linux Fest in the US so I greatly look forward to being introduced in this grand tradition. Of course, I’ll be talking about ownCloud on Saturday the 25, from 13:00 to 14:00 room D142-143.
The title of the talk is “crushing data silos with ownCloud”: helping people liberate their data from the centralized services they have stored it on. I don’t think that a world where most of the personal data of the world is stored on servers of a hand full companies is a good one. ownCloud is, right now, the best way of getting out of that world!
The talk will also cover a few interesting new ideas that we want to do in ownCloud to build a fully federated and distributed solution in the future.
It would be awesome to do a small ownCloud and/or KDE meetup there.
If you’re going to be there – let me know! Find me on twitter and lots of other social services!
