This will be NOOSS's fourth year doing this live webcast from OLF

The Northeast Ohio Open Source Society (NOOSS) is a group of people dedicated to the idea of Open Source Software. The focus of NOOSS is to discuss the ideals, concepts, technical aspects, implementations and practical aspects of OSS. Plus, we're fun.

What: Ohio Linux Fest
When: Saturday, September 26th All Day (including the afterparty)
Where: In Columbus. Or, online:
How to chat: We have irc ( #noos), jabber ( or you can direct tweets at us (@NortheastOSS)

We webcast from the show floor and talk to anyone willing to chat with us on the way by. All show attendees provide extra information and insight into the general goings on and details of the talks. Find out what everybody got out of the talks. Decide which talks you should listen to the recordings of, if they're made available. Get insight from the vendors themselves as they stand their talking to the show attendees. We are not webcasting the talks themselves (Though OLF is recording them).

Also, we manage to talk to many of the best and the brightest of the community that have been asked to speak at OLF. In the past this has included the likes of Bradley Kuhn, Max Spivak, Peter Salus and even John "Maddog" Hall, Dual Core and even Moose. Listen to last year's guests.

Don't miss this year's live all day webcast.
