conference and exhibition for Apache-related and open-source software.
The next wave of Apache deployed projects will be discussed at the
Santa Clara Convention Centre in the heart of Silicon Valley, 4 through 6
April, 2001.

ApacheCon 2001 will provide a look at the future of Apache technologies
from developers within the open source community, bringing together the key
technology vendors, senior Apache figures and open-source followers and
observers from around the globe, in response to the continuing evolution of
the open-source software community.

"ApacheCon 2001 is the best place to find out about the new driving
technologies for one of the most popular, stable open-source efforts in
the Web space. Open source software developers and users from around
the world meet to build upon Apache's collaborative tradition and contribute
to the future of the open-source movement," said Jim Jagielski, Apache
Software Foundation Board Member.

Among the line-up of ApacheCon 2001 presenters are:

          - John "maddog" Hall, Executive Director of Linux International,

both are wrong";
