My feedback about workshop venue selection, ecosystem in which Linux/Open Source can be promoted

My feedback about workshop venue selection, ecosystem in which Linux/Open Source can be promoted

Hi All, 
My name is Joseph John. I have been using Linux and Open Source for quite 
long time.  Do not have much expertise in programming, but familiar with 
programming languages. I have implemented  enterprise solution based on 
open source in all most all the fields except ERP, Business Process, 
Business Intelligence . Some of the areas which has been successfully 
implemented are VPN, Content Filtering, PDC, Network monitoring, CCTV, 
IP-PBX, Document Management,Portal Solution, etc .....

Like to share some of my experience, feedback  aboiut workshop venue 
selection and what I feel about an 
ecosystem in which Open Source can be promoted.


What I observed is that when I start trying to find a solution I do find 
great obstacle in terms of domain knowledge and setup knowledge, my 
persistence and with the help of the forums I had found a way to implement
such solutions. This procedure made me ponder on sharing my experience and
knowledge to others in installation and configuration of such product. I 
started documenting my steps and started conducting the wrkshops.  This  I
am doing to build up confidence on IT solution providers, budding IT 
support professionals, Organization  to use open source for enterprise 
solutions and I am quite successful in doing so. In this procedure  I have
mentored individuals and small organizations to adapt open source use for 
enterprise solution. I have lost count on the no of people I have mentored
so far.

All my workshop and training are free from commercial advantage, I 
politely decline any reimbursement of any  expense. I don't keep  any 
commercial aim in my workshop because I have a job, and I am happy with 
what I get as salary and content with it.  In future, in case if I do not 
have a job or another source of income I will be conducting the same 
workshop and seminar for a fee. It is how the eco system works. I am not 
taking it now  because I do not want it, not because of any  thought or 
policy  that I should not benefit commercially through my workshop.  

What I want to point out here is that there is nothing wrong in getting 
commercial benefit for your contribution and hard work. 

For eg:- members in the mailing list  might have joined Jay's LINUX 
academy for training. Good training they give, my nephew has been trained 
there. He joined there after clearing is RHCE. In a way he made is concept
clear only because he joined there for training, similarly lot many 
others. So what is wrong in this, nothing. Both the people benefited.  
Jays Linux academy  got students and students got expertise. Here every 
one wins, Jay's LINUX academy got  direct and indirect exposure and 
advertisement through Jay's Internet Club activities, no one can deny this
and no one can say wrong about this. It is a part of eco system where 
students gets good training and the academy gets advertisement.  Love to 
see lots of places like  JaysLinux Acadamy /Internet club in Kochi for the
benefit of Linux and Open Source  

For me to conduct or even attend an event in broad way is difficult 
because of the traffic, chaos .  And my previous experience in Jay 
Academy(Internet Club) is that it does not have facilities which needed. 
My workshop are interactive, participants should have a PC or laptop in 
which they can install  configure the solutions discussed.  I do believe I
have the freedom to choose workshop venue keeping following points (a) 
transportation, (b) parking, (c) seating  capacity. This way only the 
parameter I selected in choosing the venue.  I strongly felt my workshop 
will be better if I get a better place than broad way venue so  I chose a 
better venue. This is  based on freedom to choose

My mails to the mailing list has been blocked, It did not had any message 
against open source. They blocked workshop mails as well as other mail 
asking for a discussion on why we cannot bring new linux users to the 
mailing list. My mail was trying to find reason why in our mailing list we
do have a very small fraction of Linux users of Kochi.  Mailing  list 
(http://www.ilug-cochin.org/)  policy is  absurd, monopoly, with not good 
intention . It is not doing any good for the community development. It is 
alienating active members. Just because the moderator did not like the 
workshop venue He choose to block all my email for the workshop to the 
list.

This mail I am sending it to http://www.ilug-cochin.org/ and to 
ilugcochin@librelist.com . Hope the ilug-cochin moderators and office 
bears come to understand thier mistakes and mend. 


Thanks 
Joseph John
