linux.conf.au 2013 organization is chugging along nicely, with the ghosts meeting being held a little over a week ago and the zookeepr hackfest scheduled for early June. We've signed our first venue contract, and have identified venues for most of the social functions. We'll be talking more about these once they're locked in stone.
The most tangible progress for LA members is that we're very close to opening the call for proposals. That will happen at the start of June, so if you're intending to submit a proposal this year, you should put on your thinking cap now.
