The first 5 winners for the LCA2011 competition have been announced on the Linux-Aus and LCA-Announce mailing lists as well as the linux.conf.au group on Facebook, Twitter and identi.ca. The LCA2011 team will be using all these mediums and others to make any LCA2011 announcements. If you are not a member of the LCA-Announce mailing list you can join at http://lists.linux.org.au/listinfo/lca-announce to be kept updated. The LCA2011 team has spent quite a bit of time reading through the suggestions that have been received and looking at the feasibility of many of them – even if it is a suggestion for cupcakes at morning tea Please also note that the recent announcement includes a slight date change for the conference. It is now confirmed and locked in from the 24th to the 28th of January, with an open day to be held on the 29th. This means we will have another LCA conference which includes the Australia Day celebrations.
