LinuxMedNews will be reporting live from the American Medical Informatics Association conference which begins this weekend in Los Angeles. There will be a Saturday Morning AMIA tutorial, “How Open Source Really Works” as well as many open source medical software project participants and advocates in attendance. I’ll be the bearded short guy passing out light green LinuxMedNews flyers and lurking around the entrance of David Forslund’s ‘Federation of the Person Identification Service between Enterprises’ talk in the ‘Santa Barbara A/B’ room from 3:30-4:00pm on Monday Nov. 6th. Meet me there if you have any juicy information or just want to meet in person. An informal gathering will take place from 7:00pm-9:00pm Monday, Nov. 6th in the Los Feliz room of the Westin Bonaventure hotel. I will be unable to attend the Monday evening get-together as I have to be back in Houston to tend my vast stable of reporters. They get nervous if I’m away too long.
