Elizabeth Garbee to Keynote Ohio LinuxFest 2012

Columbus, Ohio - June 28. Ohio LinuxFest is very pleased to announce that Elizabeth Garbee will be a keynote speaker at the 2012 event, to be held September 28-30 at the Greater Columbus convention Center.

Elizabeth is a second-year undergraduate student who is part of a pulsar astronomy research team at Oberlin College in the US, with a long history of involvement in the open source community. She installed her first Debian machine (with some help!) at age 9 - since then, her main computing interest has been digital art, when she isn't serving as a revision control goddess and programmer for her research team. She is a frequent speaker at Linux conferences, and spoke last year at Linux Conf Australia. She last spoke at Ohio LinuxFest in 2008.
