OpenBSD Journal

Hackathon in the news!

Contributed by jose on from the support-the-troops dept.

hellsh0k was one of many to write in with this story and link: "Imagine my surprise when I opened my newspaper this morning to find a rather large article about the OpenBSD hackathon, picture included, on the front page of the business section. While the article gets quite a few technical details wrong, I think it is great that OpenBSD is at least getting some sort of media recognition. Also, since the article is from CanWest News Service, there is a good chance that it will run in a lot of Canada's local and regional newspapers.

An online version is available here: Saskatoon Online " The other story people had contributed was this story from Calgary , which covers most of the same material. Looks like an interesting bit of press and some insight into how the hackathon is going.
