SCaLE is a community run open-source and free software conference held annually in Los Angeles, usually (always?) at the Los Angeles Airport Hilton.

Robinson and David running the SCALE 12x booth

Event Summary

The 2015 SCALE conference went very well! We had a number of great new volunteers, as well as seasoned pro, David Eisenberg. There was a lot of interest in running Document Freedom Day events, and several people signed up to help promote ODF, open formats, and talk about software like LibreOffice that respects user freedoms.

People enjoyed the projector demobox setup, asking questions both about LibreOffice and about the small Chromebox on which we run LibreOffice (it's running an Ubuntu flavor right now; we did get a number of q's about how to run LibreOffice on a Chromebook/ChromeOS!)

I (Robinson) gave a talk about What's preventing your organization from using Free/Open Source Software Today?, and had a great audience that had a number of good follow-up questions about LibreOffice and how to make Free Software a viable choice for orgs and companies.
