OSCON: Conference wrap-up + big thanks to our volunteers!

Hi all,

OSCON -- the O'Reilly Open Source Convention -- wraps up today in Portland, OR:
http://www.oscon.com/oscon2014/public/content/home

The expo hall closed yesterday, but there are still some sessions and
other activities continuing at the Oregon Convention Center until this
afternoon. In the expo hall the LibreOffice booth was flanked by our
friends at the Software Freedom Conservancy on one side, and Wikimedia
on the other:

Italo and Simon Phipps were both present at OSCON, as were two amazing
local LibreOffice booth volunteers, Robin Haberman and Scarlett Clark.
Having a solid team turns booth duty from a drudge of long days into a
much happier experience. Between the volunteers, Italo, and I, we
talked to hundreds of visitors, gave out dozens of brochures, taught
people about some new LibreOffice features, and even did a little bug
triaging!

I held a BoF on Tuesday regarding collaboration between FOSS projects
and FOSS-friendly orgs, and got a number of different people from
different aspects of FOSS and event planning to show up, including the
ever-helpful Bill Wright of LinuxFest NW. We'll continue our
discussion on the Community Leadership Forum, as well as planning
BoF's at Fossetcon (Orlando, FL) and SeaGL (Seattle, WA):

Linux.com "Linux Kernel Dev. Work Space"

This is a great video series that Linux.com puts on. And it just shows 
how a little about the personal lives of people make it fun to watch and 
to market.

Have a peek at Linus' work space video.

Lao Open Source Training on LibreOffice

Hi LibreOfficers,
I am happy to share some news from Laos. From 14 to 30 of July 2014, we are
conducting the first ever Open Source training in public schools for both
students and teachers titled 'Free Open Source Software adoption in
secondary schools' namely 10 major high schools in the capital of Laos. We
have adopted LibreOffice as major office application: Write, Calc, Impress,
and Math. We concentrate on 10% technical and the rest is of practical.

The Ministry of Post and Telecommunications' Department of Planning and
Cooperation received funding from ASEAN ICT and we are the main partner for
the training.

I am very grateful to people who are very supportive and very kind for the
good cause here in Laos and we hope to further our Open Source developments
for the great benefit of the people and society.

As you might already know, I am the Lao Open Source evangelist and have
been working and pushing Lao open source for nearly 15 years now.
We are very happy to get thus far and the work is not stopping here, there
is no limit to what we can do.

Attached are photos of the training.

Cheers and long live the Open Source,

Anousak Souphavanh
Lao Open Source

My Texas LinuxFest Interview is up on Slashdot...

http://news.slashdot.org/story/14/07/17/1820239/meet-libreoffice-volunteer-robinson-tryon-video

The video currently requires Flash player, but I'm working on getting
an alternate copy for those who'd like to avoid Adobe Flash/non-free
video formats.

There's also a text transcript, for those who prefer reading :-)

Cheers,

Suggestions re: organizing intro to LibreOffice in Waterloo Canada

Just looking for some suggestions.

As it looks like some real efforts at organizing US-native bug hunting 
meets are being managed seriously, I am thinking of doing the same in 
Canada, but starting in Waterloo where I reside.

I am also working on a list of Canadian Libraries where I will approach 
in the hopes of contacting/informing them of LibreOffice docs available 
for purchase and of installation possibilities on their systems. I have 
a list of approx. 250 libraries already worked out and have only gotten 
half-way through our provinces.

So, to start, I hope to contact our 3 local university computing 
departments as well as the same in a couple of local colleges and 
perhaps do some introductory presentations to some of them if they agree.

Are there any suggestions as to what stages worked best to organize 
local dev groups?

Cheers,

Marc

Answering some questions about libreoffice magazine

Hello Community,

The libreoffice magazine is a bimonthly release.

The advertisements in the LibreOffice Magazine are not paid. We work 
different. Our intention with the Magazine is promote LibreOffice, 
promote the FLOSS events and promote the blogs that promote LibreOffice. 
The truth is that we help each other. For example, we have enterprises 
in Brazil that provide services with free software and when they want to 
have an advertisement in the Magazine, I ask for help for the project. 
Never money! Our last magazine release, we had an advertisement from 
Ricolândia enterprise, they work with animation, videos, websites and 
etc and they only work with free software. Then, our agreement was: they 
are preparing an animation video about LibreOffice in Portuguese and 
English. :)

Why do we have so many volunteers?

First, we announce call for papers for all editions in the social 
networks and e-mail lists. Our magazine has sections for LibreOffice 
(articles, tutorial and tips) and open space for open source communities 
(articles, tutorial and tips).

We take very seriously the magazine project like a magazine paid. And I 
think the volunteers feel privileged and very motivated to write. The 
magazine project is growing so fast and it's marvelous.

We make the volunteers feel at home, we are very kind to them. In the 
end, I think we are a big family. Many open source communities rowing 
the boat to the same side, all with the same goal, sharing the knowledge. :)
