Monash University in Victoria hosted CALU-99, the Conference of Australian Linux Users for three days: 9-11 July, 1999. Attendees ranged from young to not so young; from the far flung reaches of western Australia to those living minute from campus; from those who are new to Linux to those who've made significant contributions to it already.
The speakers and their papersCALU-99 had an excellent range of speakers and papers presented. Those that attended CALU-99 received a copy of the papers on CDROM. Never fear, if you don't have a copy, we've published the contents of the CALU CDROM.
John "maddog" Hall tests the audio system prior to addressing the crowd. He then delivers his keynote address available here embodied by Keynote Address part 1, then Keynote Address part 2. There is a small section of a few seconds missing in the middle. oops. That's our fault, not maddog's.
The "Something Warm and Fuzzy" talk, also by maddog, part 1 and part 2
