The first big show of the year with Haiku in attendance is right around the corner. The Southern California Linux Expo 6x will be taking place in Los Angeles, CA (USA) February 8-10, 2008. BGA and Koki will be manning the Haiku booth along with others and have given an interview to Gareth J. Greenway about their Haiku involvement. The article is an excellent read and you can find out more information about the Haiku events planned at the Expo here. If you happen to be in the LA area at that time, stop by and say “Hey!” or if you can help out, contact Koki and let him know you are interested in helping. If you do attend, drop us a line and let us have your impressions of the event.

Besol conducted an interview with Bruno G. Albuquerque regarding his work with Zeta and yellowTAB. The interview is in Spanish, so if you want a translated version you can always try using Bablefish or go here for the english translation by Google. The english translation isn’t the greatest, but it gives you an idea of what’s being said.
In a very fitting end to WalterCon…
Elvis spotted near WalterCon, chauffered away by his 9 year old grandson!
7 of the remaining attendants were at Chi Chi’s for dinner. On our way out, Elvis walked out wearing a sleeve-less blue plaid flannel. His hair hasn’t changed at all over the years, although his face has aged and he has put on a little weight.
He walked out, and an old oldsmobile drove up and he got in the car - driven by what couldn’t have been more than a 9 year old boy!
He didn’t respond to questions, and when asked what his opinion on the name Haiku, he stated “I’m all shook up”.
Well, okay, up until that last paragragh is true.
It was a great time, and I think we’ve all made some lifelong friends. I look forward to see everyone again next year sportin’ their spankin’ new Haiku laptops!
Technix from the BeOS Journal arranged an interview with Simon Gauvin of the now entirely lower cased version of beunited.org, and invited BeGroovy to join in the madness. We obviously accepted, and dove in to interview the head of one of the most interesting organizations on the BeOS scene. Read on for part 1 of our joint interview, and post questions for part 2 in the comments. Enjoy!
First she interviewed Michael Phipps of OpenBeOS, now Eugenia has posted an interview with Guillaume Maillard, member of the BlueOS Team. Head over to OSNews to get the scoop on this attempt to recreate BeOS in the opensource community.
While many think that the BeOS community is fragmenting with all these different efforts, this article is just another sign that we are all working together towards the same goals - we are all on the same mailing lists sharing ideas, and even swapping code amongst the projects. BlueOS, OpenBeOS and BeUnited’s initiative are all just different paths to get to the same goal… saving BeOS.
Bruno G. Albuquerque has long been a major player in the BeOS community. He has helped to organize and run the incredibly large Be User Group in Brazil, bug-br, and has helped out on pretty much anything else he can. His most recent project is a complete, opensource replacement for the standard BeOS mail_daemon and libraries. We talked with him about what he is planning, and it sounds very very nice.. Read on.
Jeremy Frisner wrote a cool server software that allows developers to send BMessage like things over a network interface. He calls it MUSCLE. To demonstrate it’s potential, he wrote a small app called BeShare, which has grown and become a great piece of software for BeOS users everywhere. Because of this, when Technix and I had the opportunity to interview him, we jumped at it. Not only did we get some info about him… we also got some info (and shots) of his next project.
Well, I guess I have held out long enough on Part 2 of the infamous Jean-Louis Gassée interview. So now i have posted part 2 online, as an extension to the first part of the interview. You can jump straight to the second half here. Feel free to pick up from where the first half’s comments left off, or head over here and keep on chugging with new comments. I hope it was worth the wait. Update: BTW - JLG has agreed to answer 10 questions from our comments (as picked by us) so, get your thinking caps on boys & girls.
Since BeGroovy began, one of our top goals has been an interview with the man himself, Jean-Louis Gassée. Thanks to the efforts of Scar, such an interview was arranged and conducted december 12th 2000, when Myself, Scar, and JLG sat down for a few hours to chat about the year 2000 for Be, Inc, as well as what the future may hold. Its gone through the system, and here it (finally) is. Have a blast.
Continuing in our amazing series of great interviews with key players in the BeOS community (not to mention our trademark modesty), We are glad to bring you an interview with Marco Nelissen, creator of many great apps including SoundPlay. Read on for more…
Recently BeGroovy reporters Scar and Technix did what can only be described as “bombarding” Kenny Carruthers with questions. After the resulting rubble was sorted through, we ended up with a rather large 6 page interview on everything from Postmaster 2.0, to Be Inc, to BeIA, to his stint at Apple. Party on.
