Here's your chance for for fame and fortune... well a trip the the Linux
Foundation Japan Linux Symposium anyway:
The "I'm Linux" Video Contest
If you've been alive and aware of mass media over the last twelve
months, you've probably seen television commercials from Apple and
Microsoft touting their operating system. From Apple's ubiquitous "I'm a
Mac" to Jerry Seinfeld to Microsoft's "I'm a PC" retort, operating
system commercials have been flooding the airways. Except one OS has
been notably absent – Linux.
While the Linux Foundation would love to spend millions promoting Linux
on TV, it's simply not our style (or in our budget). Even more
importantly, Linux isn't a top-down, commercially controlled operating
system. It's a grassroots product of mass collaboration. That's why
we're sponsoring a community contest to create a Linux video that
showcases just what Linux means to those who use it, and hopefully
inspires many to try it.
The winner will receive a free trip to Tokyo, Japan to participate in
the Linux Foundation Japan Linux Symposium in October 2009. The winning
video will also be unveiled at the Linux Foundation's Collaboration
Summit in San Francisco on April 8, 2009.
Maybe we could convince the folks that did the "The Matrix Runs on
Windows" video to apply :-) "Ubuntu? I'm going to learn Ubuntu?"
