ConferenceByWire will be live streaming many of the SCALE conference sessions later this week for those who are unable to travel to Los Angeles. We took a few minutes to meet with their CEO Sergey Sundukovskiy, so that he could tell us about their services as well as what SCALE attendees can expect from ConferenceByWire.
If you had any doubt as to whether the IT industry takes the Southern California Linux Expo seriously, this should put those doubts to rest. Here's a list of the companies that will be at SCALE, looking for talent to hire:
The Hilton LAX has been offering SCALE attendees a discounted room rate of $109/night as part of this year's show. At the moment this rate is no longer being offered online for some reason, however it is still available by telephone. If you have trouble booking with the discounted rate online, please call the Hilton LAX directly at 310-410-4000.

Locations of various events have been pretty much finalized; A/V locations and required inventories nailed down; and lots of other details firmed up.
Everyone attending SCALE will get both a SCALE 9X t-shirt (courtesy SCALE), and a SCALE coffee cup (courtesy Oracle).
SCALE will be delivering both IPv4 and IPv6 network address space to all vendors, orgs, and attendees. This will be the second year that both ACT USA and Digilink Network Services have provided IPv6 to the show. Stu Sheldon, SCALE's Tech Advisor explained how it will work at the Expo.
