Like many fellow geeks, I've recently returned to the movie theater to watch the Revenge of the Sith. While I enjoyed seeing the movie, I think this review just about covers my feelings on the things that were good and the things that were bad about the movie itself.

I saw the OSCON is in Portland, and since my wife and I want to visit there sometime soon I looked into the price for the convention. The nearly $1000 price tag is fairly prohibitive for my meager personal budget. I long for the old Linux cons NCSU/RedHat used to put on for real people where little money is involved and you could see some of the cool stuff people were doing (back then) in person. I am not too sure the commercialization of that effort really helped open source and free software geeks, except maybe to enlarge the potential job pool involving said software.
