Unfortunately I'm not going to make it to LCA this year, but there's still plenty of UEFI coverage - Dong Wei, Vice President of the UEFI forum, will be giving an introduction to UEFI, and James Bottomley, who's been working on the Linux Foundation's UEFI bootloader solution, will be talking about Secure Boot.

For those of you on this side of the Pacific (or who just can't get enough of listening to my melodious voice), I'll be keynoting the Southern California Linux Expo next month. This will be a discussion of the more social aspects of our work on Secure Boot over the past year and a half - an epic tail of astonishment, terror, politics, confusion and hard won victories, and the remaining issues that are yet unsolved. Clearly not to be missed. If California's too far for you, then come March I'll be at the North East Linux Fest. I'll be talking about how to make sure that your Linux distribution works with Secure Boot, and, assuming I've got the code finished by then, a little about how to break it.
