Austin's Karmic Release Party!

Thanks to everyone who joined us at Austin's Jaunty Release Party in April 2009, which we held at 6th's Jackalope Bar -- oh so perfectly named!

I had hoped to follow up our synchronicity with the Karmic Release Party at a bar called Karma in downtown Austin. Unfortunately, it doesn't open until 9pm, which is probably a bit late for our crowd. So I needed to find another interesting, appropriate venue.

Join us between
6pm - 9pm on Thursday, October 29, 2009 at Aussie's Grill and Beach Bar, at 306 Barton Springs Road, just east of the corner of Riverside and Barton Springs Road, south of the river. I figured an Australian-themed bar would have to work, in honor of the home of our lovely mascot, the Karmic Koala!

Burning CD's is so '90s... If you'd like a bootable/installable copy of Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, bring an empty USB stick, 1GB or bigger, and we'll gladly burn an image for you. There should be a couple of laptops demoing the new release. I'm planning on bringing two, to demo the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud (UEC), powered by Eucalyptus, which I've been working on for the last few months.

Also, leave a note in the comments below, if you plan on joining us, so I'll have some idea of how much space to reserve. Look for us outdoors, on the patio (weather permitting). And perhaps we'll do a little after party at Karma, just to say we did! :-)
