Video Contest: I'm Linux

The Linux Foundation, a Non-Profit Organization, is sponsoring a Video Competition to create a commercial for Linux on the lines of "I'm a Mac'" and "I'm a PC" as done by Apple and Microsoft respectively. Linux is owned by its community and its only fitting that the community should participate in its promotion on Television, hence this Video contest. The winner gets no cash but a an all expense trip (airfare and hotel for 3 days) to Tokyo, Japan to participate in the Linux Foundation Japan Linux Symposium in October 2009.

There are some basic guidelines:
- Keep the video under a minute
- Comply with their ToS
- Watch your language and keep it clean
- Make it original and interesting

For more details check out their website and more importantly, get busy.


Ran into PEP 8 (Python Style Guide) written by Guido. It was nice to realize that i follow majority of his recommendations. At the same time i learned some new things which i had never thought of.

Good read!
