Well now, there’s been a lot of speculation about the LugRadio Live event this year. Would it happen? Wouldn’t it happen? If it were to happen, when and where would it be? All kinds of crazy rumours and whisperings. It’s obviously an event that captures people’s imagination and breeds real enthusiasm among Linux geeks, not just in Britain but worldwide. I was lucky enough to experience my first LRL last year. We took the whole Linux Outlaws posse down there and everyone was really friendly to us. We chatted to some great people, drank too much, sang (yes seriously there is video) and had a ball. It made me sad I’d not gotten off my arse and gone before. I only discovered the podcast in late 2006, late to the game (as always) but I failed to make it to LRL 2007. I still miss the podcast as I know many others do.
Last year there was great excitement when the lads announced that even though the podcast was coming to an end, the live event would happen again in 2009. As the year’s gone on it’s been harder and harder to believe it would really happen. I’d been told by some people close to the camp that it would happen but later in the year but nothing definite. I know the good folk at Wolves LUG have been planning away and working on it for a while. Today brought good news for all LugRadio fans. An announcement was finally made on Identi.ca and Twitter. Drum roll please….
LugRadio Live 2009 will happen on Saturday 24th October at Newhampton Arts Centre, Wolverhampton!!
The holding page on the website says there’ll be more information soon and to watch the microblogs. So, like everyone else I’ll be keeping an eye out for updates, but I just wanted to give you all a little nudge and make sure you knew the event will be happening this year. Yay!
Fear the karaoke people… fear it… I do!!! (shudder)
