SAGE-ACT is still "dark".  Interest is sought for anyone interested in helping 
it revive.  Meetings get sponsored free pizza or beer, if that forms a 
motivating factor.  I'd be happy to link you up with the right people.

and covers more than Linux,  including Un-personed Air Vehicles, home-built 
"Segways", detailed mathematics, running a business.... etc.  Next year's will

There's also OSDC (http://www.osdc.com.au/ ) for the developers amongst us, 
running in Brisbane this year.

All the best,
