Raspberry Pi Tuesday night?

Several ABLEconf participants have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Raspberry Pi! It looks like the wait might finally be over. The announcement doesn't say for certain, but it looks like the $25 and $35 computers might finally be going on sale ( Tuesday night, February 28th, Arizona time ).

Why are we excited about this? Well, aside from credit card sized computers for $35? :)

GNUmed conference in Germany

A GNUmed conference is being planned for mid-year in Germany. The announcement doesn't list specific dates, but mentions the May - July timeframe.

GNUmed builds Electronic Medical Record software. To quote from the GNUmed web site, the software can "assist and improve longitudinal care (specifically in ambulatory settings, i.e. multi-professional practices and clinics)."

Oh yeah, lots of hiring. Puppet, CFEngine, Chef? KVM, VirtualBox? Lots of places to do many things at once.
