Some great news - the lca2011 team and Linux Australia have made a joint
decision that lca2011 will go ahead!
At this stage the venue location is still to be confirmed as are a number
of social events, though there are some backup plans in place.
We are aware that Urbanest is still without power but expect power to be
restored on Thursday. Should Urbanest be unavailable - backup
accommodation has been confirmed at the residential colleges at the
University of Queensland (Near St Leo's). Delegates who are not staying at
St Leo's or Urbanest should check with their accommodation provider on
availability, prior to travelling.
lca2011 Mythbuster #1 - Brisbane's water is fine and very very drinkable
lca2011 Mythbuster #2 - Brisbane has not run out of food (although some
restaurants will have a limited menu)
lca2011 Mythbuster #3 - public transport is operational (though some routes
are still affected). Unfortunately, the Brisbane CityCat service is out of
action till further notice.
lca2011 Mythbuster #4 - lca2011 has not been cancelled
The lca2011 team will keep you continually updated via email and the
website. We expect to announce a confirmed venue by Wednesday evening -
but please remember we do have back up plans here and lca2011 is going
ahead. There may be some changes in the schedule but it will be a great
