LCA 2010: Getting up close and personal with the Arduino 

,----[ Quote ]
| When Jonathan Oxer turns up at Australia's 
| national Linux conference, you can be sure that 
| he'll have an interesting idea, either to talk 
| about or else to demonstrate.
| [...]
| Oxer, who looks a bit different these days 
| after shedding his locks for a good cause, will 
| be conducting a mini-conference, a one-day 
| workshop, on the Arduino .


LCA 2010: Guiding little ones down the FOSS path 

,----[ Quote ]
| He's probably New Zealand's best-known FOSS 
| figure today but modestly attributes his 
| achievements to seizing opportunities that came 
| his way and, occasionally, creating one or two 
| of his own.



LCA 2010: The art of the matter

,----[ Quote ]
| Buchanan is the creative designer for the
| Wellington conference which is being held
| from January 18 to 23. Apart from the
| conference website, every other graphic
| used in the conference has been created by
| her.
| "The creative design is something that has
| had a lot of input from the team from the
| beginning," she told iTWire in an
| interview. "I didn't design the website,
| but pretty much any other graphic
| associated with the conference was
| designed by me."
| The conference T-shirts generally long
| outlive any LCA - delegates will thus have
| Buchanan's designs with them long after
| the conference is over.
