The second annual trade show created and run by volunteers and activists of The Boston Computer Society (BCS)


We demonstrate a number of Linux and Unix applications, and share our booth with the BCS WebMasters team. Jim Paradis demonstrates Linux/Alpha, Digital's port of Linux to the Alpha AXP. Lar Kaufman answers many questions and shows off many of the O'Reilly Nutshell series of Unix guides.

Thanks to Rich Braun of Pioneer Global Telecommunications for providing a 57.6Kbps Internet connection in our booth.


Lar Kaufman is a graduate of Boston University Law School, living in Concord, Massachusetts a few miles from Walden Pond. He has worked as a documentation consultant for many years, and began writing about UNIX in 1983. Since then, he has written on System V, BSD, Mach, OSF/1, and Linux.

His hobbies include interactive media as art/literature, homebuilt and antique aircraft (he's a licensed aircraft mechanic), and natural history. Formerly a BBS operator, in 1987 Lar founded the Fidonet echoes (newsgroups) Biosphere and BioNews.

He is currently working on a project to develop a media lab incorporating adaptive technology for print-disabled use through the law library where he studies. The lab will use a Linux server and provide user services on Windows NT, Macintosh, and Linux systems.
