A user interface can be loosely defined as the point where a person interacts with a machine. Currently, that interaction point can be a laptop or a smart phone, quite different types of physical presentation space. A solution might look fantastic on a laptop, but not work on smart phone's browser, causing the user to have to scroll around on the page. What we need is a comprehensive collection of interface patterns to use as a guide. Designing Interfaces is that guide.
I'm amazed at all the technical people living here in Lawrence, Kansas, so I've decided to do a series of interviews to highlight what our small college town has to offer the international tech community. Recently I sat down with local author Stephen Figgins at a coffee shop to talk about what's new in the latest release of the popular Linux in a Nutshell book.

Last week I took the 20-minute BART ride from the East Bay over to Moscone West in San Francisco to visit what was once known as LinuxWorld and is now OpenSourceWorld, Next Generation Data Center, and CloudWorld all rolled into one event. Like many others, having been to previous LinuxWorlds, I was curious to see how this re-branding and grouping of events would pan out. LinuxWorld had been getting quite the panning (no pun intended) over the last five years or so, so could the new event cut the mustard and reel back in its once committed group of sightseers?
Recently, five college professors spent an intense five days with Red Hat employees and other members of the free and open source software (FOSS) community. Red Hat called the experience POSSE (Professors' Open Source Summer Experience). The goal of the week was to show how FOSS could be used in post-secondary education, and to create a community to further the goal.
O'Reilly's Velocity Conference, held June 22-24 in San Jose, California, was one of the most relevant conferences on the state of the Web.
FISL 10.0 in Porto Alegre, Brazil was the best yet, for many reasons. For a long time I have been impressed with how the FISL organizers (most, if not all of which are volunteers) have brought together government, industry and the community to put on an ever-larger and more complex event.
