ಮೈಸೂರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಗ್ನು/ಲಿನಕ್ಸ್ ಹಬ್ಬ - ಈ ಭಾನುವಾರ, ಮೈಸೂರು ವಿಶ್ವವಿದ್ಯಾಲಯದಲ್ಲಿ [Sep. 19th, 2008|02:24 pm]

ಸೆಪ್ಟೆಂಬರ್ 21 2008, ಭಾನುವಾರ
ಸ್ಥಳ: ಭೌತಶಾಸ್ತ್ರ ವಿಭಾಗ,
ಮೈಸೂರು ವಿಶ್ವವಿದ್ಯಾಲಯ,
ಮಾನಸಗಂಗೋತ್ರಿ, ಮೈಸೂರು.


ಮುಂಚಿನಿಂದಲೂ ಗ್ನು/ಲಿನಕ್ಸ್ ಆಪರೇಟಿಂಗ್ ಸಿಸ್ಟಂ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶದ ಕಡೆಗೆ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಒಲವಿರುವ "ಗೀಕ್&"ಗಳಿಗೆ ಮಾತ್ರ ಸೀಮಿತವಾದದ್ದು ಎಂಬ ಅನಿಸಿಕೆಯಿದೆ.  ಗ್ನು/ಲಿನಕ್ಸ್ ನ ಬಹುತೇಕ ಅಂಶವಾದ ಸ್ವತಂತ್ರ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶ(free software -- free as in freedom) ಹಾಗೂ ಅದರಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಸ್ವಾತಂತ್ರ್ಯದ ಆಸ್ಥೆ ಕೂಡ ಕಂಪ್ಯೂಟರ್ ಸಾಫ್ಟ್ವೇರ್ ತಿಳಿದವರಿಗೆ ಮಾತ್ರ ಎಂಬ ಪರಿಕಲ್ಪನೆಯಿದೆ.

ಆದರೆ ಈ ಭಾನುವಾರ ಸೆಪ್ಟೆಂಬರ್ ೨೧, ೨೦೦೮ರಂದು ಮೈಸೂರು ವಿಶ್ವವಿದ್ಯಾಲಯದ ಫಿಸಿಕ್ಸ್ ಡಿಪಾರ್ಟಮೆಂಟ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ "ಗೀಕ್"ಗಳು, ಗ್ನು/ಲಿನಕ್ಸ್ ಆಸಕ್ತರು, ಬಳಸುವವರು ಎಲ್ಲರೂ ಒಟ್ಟಾಗಿ ಸ್ವತಂತ್ರ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶ ಹಾಗೂ ಗ್ನೂ/ಲಿನಕ್ಸ್ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಮಾಹಿತಿ ಒದಗಿಸುವ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನ ಮಾಡಲಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಸ್ವತಂತ್ರ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶದಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಸ್ವಾತಂತ್ರ್ಯದ ಕುರಿತು ತಿಳಿಸಲಿದ್ದಾರೆ, ಅಲ್ಲದೆ ಗ್ನು/ಲಿನಕ್ಸ್ ಕುರಿತು ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯ ಕಂಪ್ಯೂಟರ್ ಬಳಕೆದಾರರಿಗೆ ಮಾಹಿತಿ ಒದಗಿಸಲಿದ್ದಾರೆ ಅವರಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಪ್ರಶ್ನೆಗಳಿಗೆ ಉತ್ತರ ಒದಗಿಸುವ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನ ಮಾಡಲಿದ್ದಾರೆ, ಗ್ನು/ಲಿನಕ್ಸ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಕನ್ನಡ ಬಳಸುವುದು ಹೇಗೆ ಎಂಬುದನ್ನು ತೋರಿಸಿಕೊಡಲಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಗ್ನು/ಲಿನಕ್ಸ್ ಹಬ್ಬದ ಮೊದಲ ಆವೃತ್ತಿ ಇದೇ ವರ್ಷ ಏಪ್ರಿಲ್ ತಿಂಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಇಂಡಿಯನ್ ಇನ್ಸ್ಟಿಟ್ಯೂಟ್ ಆಫ್ ಸೈನ್ಸ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ನಡೆಯಿತು. ಸಂಪದ ಸಮುದಾಯದ ಗ್ನು/ಲಿನಕ್ಸ್ ಆಸಕ್ತರು ಈ ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮವನ್ನು ನಡೆಸಿಕೊಟ್ಟರು.  ಸುಮಾರು ೩೭೭ ಕ್ಕೂ ಹೆಚ್ಚಿನ ಜನ ನೋಂದಾಯಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದರು.  ಇವರಲ್ಲಿ ಎನ್.ಜಿ.ಒಗಳು, ಸರ್ಕಾರಿ  ಇಲಾಖೆಗಳಿಂದ ಹಲವರು, ವೃತ್ತಿಪರರು, ವಿಧ್ಯಾರ್ಥಿಗಳು, ಜನಸಾಮಾನ್ಯರು ಹೀಗೆ ಎಲ್ಲರೂ ಭಾಗವಹಿಸಿದ್ದರು.

ಕಂಪ್ಯೂಟರ್ ಬಳಸುವ ಎಲ್ಲರಿಗೂ ಈ ಹಬ್ಬಕ್ಕೆ ಮುಕ್ತ ಅಹ್ವಾನವಿದೆ. ಈ ಬಾರಿ ಹಬ್ಬದಲ್ಲಿ ಸ್ವತಂತ್ರ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶದ ಕುರಿತು ನಿಮ್ಮೊಂದಿಗೆ ಮಾಹಿತಿ ಹಂಚಿಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತೇವೆ. ಹಾಗೂ ದಿನಬಳಕೆಯ ಹಲವಾರು ಮುಕ್ತ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶದ  ಅಪ್ಲ್ಲಿಕೇಷನ್ನುಗಳನ್ನು ಪರಿಚಯಿಸಿ ಬಳಸುವ ವಿಧಾನವನ್ನು ತೋರಿಸಿಕೊಡುತ್ತೇವೆ. ಕಂಪ್ಯೂಟರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಕನ್ನಡದ ಬಳಕೆಯ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ತಿಳಿಸಿಕೊಡುತ್ತೇವೆ.

ಪೈರೇಟೆಡ್/ ಪ್ರೊಪ್ರೈಟರಿ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶಗಳ ಬಳಕೆಯಿಂದ ಸೊರಗಿ, ವೈರಸ್ಸುಗಳ ತೊಂದರೆಗಳು ಅನುಭವಿಸಿದ್ದವರಿಗೆ  ಆ  ತೊಂದರೆಗಳಿಂದ ಮುಕ್ತರಾಗಲು ಇದು ಸದವಕಾಶವಾಗಬಹುದು.
ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಲ್ಲಿ ಇಂಡಿಯನ್ ಇನ್ಸ್ಟಿಟ್ಯೂಟ್ ಆಫ್ ಸೈನ್ಸ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ನಡೆದ ಮೊದಲ ಆವೃತ್ತಿಗೆ ಸಿಕ್ಕ ಪ್ರತಿಕ್ರಿಯೆ ಮತ್ತಷ್ಟು ಜನರಿಗೆ ಮುಕ್ತ  ಹಾಗೂ ಸ್ವತಂತ್ರ ತಂತ್ರಾಂಶದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ತಿಳಿಸುಕೊಡುವ ಉತ್ಸಾಹವನ್ನು ಮೂಡಿಸಿದೆ. ಕರ್ನಾಟಕದ ಎಲ್ಲ ಊರುಗಳಲ್ಲೂ ಈ ಮಾಹಿತಿ ತಲುಪಿಸಬೇಕು ಎಂಬ ಮಹತ್ವದ ಉದ್ದೇಶದಿಂದ ಈ ಬಾರಿ ಮೈಸೂರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಗ್ನು/ಲಿನಕ್ಸ್ ಹಬ್ಬವನ್ನಾಚರಿಸಲಿದ್ದೇವೆ.  ಮೈಸೂರು ವಿಶ್ವವಿದ್ಯಾಲಯದ ಭೌತಶಾಸ್ತ್ರ ವಿಭಾಗದ ಐನ್‍ಸ್ಟೈನ್ ಆಡಿಟೋರಿಯಂ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಈ ಬಾರಿಯ ಲಿನಕ್ಸ್ ಹಬ್ಬ ನಡೆಯಲಿದೆ. ಆಸಕ್ತರು http://habba.in ಸೈಟಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನೋಂದಾಯಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬಹುದು.

Learn Kannada Programme - ಕನ್ನಡ ಕಲಿ ! [Jan. 4th, 2008|08:43 am]

inthing
Sent: 26 ಡಿಸೆಂಬರ್ 2007 16:01
Subject: Kannada kali karyakrama - January 6 kke


Snehitare,
Banavasi Balaga is organizing an event on  Kannada Kali on 6th of January at Indian Institute of World Culture, Bengaluru.

"Kannada Kali" is a program to teach Kannada to non-kannadigas across IT/BT companies in Bengaluru. It was first conceived at Infosys, Bengaluru and owing to the enormous response it got from Non-Kannadigas as well as Volunteers ( who wished to take such an initiative in their organisation), it rapidly spread out to atleast 30 IT companies in Bengaluru. It works in 2 models:

1. Volunteer based
2. Volunteer anchored and supported by a Trainer

A interesting out come of Kannada Kali at work place is that, it facilitates group learning, addresses the limited time issue for a person., acts as a stress buster for both trainers and trainees, and above all one can experience a "mini-India" in the class room .

Articles on Kannada kali:

Kannada Kali's website:
www.kannadakali.org <http://www.kannadakali.org/>

So, how does Kannada kali work? What about course ware? How can we start this in your organizations? What about support?? How does it benefit your organization?  We'll answer all your querries in the event we have planned.

For a better perspective, I cordially invite you to the Event on 6th of January at Indian Institute of World Culture, B.P.Wadia Road, BasavanaGudi, Bengaluru. An invitation with road map will be sent in a day or two. I request you to mark your calendar and make a visit to the event and share a memorable experience with us over a cup of Coffee.

Please pass this information to your fellow kannadiga friends working in different companies.

Note: This is open for all and not just for people working in IT.

Details:
Kannada Kali
When: Jan 6 2008, Sunday

Indic languages and the computer /internet [Jan. 17th, 2007|02:32 pm]

vinay_ks
Namaskara yellarigu, modalnedaage..ee post na full english nall maadtiddenni..just copy/paste from the post in Bangalore community adakke..matte yella kannadadalli type maadakke swalpa bore aithu plus swalp kelse ide..dont mind!:-)

Hi All,

As the penetration of internet increases in India we are seeing more and more people using the indic/regional languages to communicate apart from english. 

There are a lot of challenges around using Indic languages on computers/over the internet.

We have a session in Barcamp Bangalore 5, to discuss the same. 
(To know more about what a Barcamp is , check out www.barcampbangalore.org )

This collective's focus is to highlight some of the efforts that are going on currently to promote the Indic languages and to get ideas on how to increase the reach of the same.

A few pointers in that direction would be :

- The resources available currently.
- How do we promote the usage of Indic languages ?
- Localization of the tools/web pages we use.
- Localization efforts in Open Source. How do you participate ?
- Blogging in regional languages in India.
- How effective is it to communicate in regional languages ? and what makes it interesting ?
- What would make it easier ?
- How transliteration tools work ? How to build them ?
- Indic languages on mobiles

Would like to have more ideas on the same.


 Requesting all those interested in Indic languages and computing , to participate.

You can follow the discussion at http://barcampbangalore.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=333#333.

To find out how to participate check out www.barcampbangalore.org .

 If you have any questions please mail me at vinay.sreenivasa@yahoo.com or praveengarlapati@gmail.com  .
You can also call me at 91-98805-95032.

Thanks,
Vinay.

Kannada in MediaWiki? [Oct. 19th, 2007|12:53 am]

vinay_ks
Namaskara Yellarigu.

Ee naduve Mediawiki is being used in a lot of places, to set-up a wiki. Aadre, Mediawiki does not support any Indian langugae directly/through Baraha etc. It would be great to get Mediawiki to support Local Indian languages especially if we need to capture a lot of localized content.

I've posted a query in MediaWiki's tech mailing list asking how we can get that done.

Meanwhile, neev yaaradru ee vishayada bagge swalpa reasearch maadidre/yenaadru action thagondiddre, adanna illi post maadi.

Thanks!

Singari - Kannada literary magazine [Jun. 30th, 2007|02:20 am]

pramodbiligiri
(I posted this to my blog yesterday. Hope it's ok to repost here.)

My mom has spent the last couple of months in bringing out an online Kannada magazine called Singari, where she and some friends want to put up literature related articles every month. Check it out if this piques your interest.
It's still very early stages so there's tackiness all around. Feel free to give feedback.

I have read only a couple of the articles there so I can't speak about the content itself. Hopefully you'll find something of interest. Or tell people you know who might like it ;) Though it's taglined as a literary magazine, I was surprised to see lots of other stuff.

On the technical side, a lot of the initial work was done by Mr.Subramanya of Kannada Ganaka Parishat, including a decision to use Flash which eliminated all font problems. Recently I pitched in to simplify the file structure, added a comments and feedback form using JS-Kit. Moving the content to GooglePages gave a huge speed boost.

Interestingly, there's another Kannada literary mag called Gelathi which launched in April.

                                     A friend of mine gave this idea of interviewing interesting people ,right from literary persons , directors , to people like autodrivers ( thay are philosophers in their own way) and upload it on the net . we need suggestions both technical and otherwise in this matter .  it would be encouraging to get  few inputs.

kannada community ... [May. 9th, 2007|09:32 am]

esope
              if you carefully look at the journal entries ,  the frequency is less .
this reflects the state of the language . in my last entry i had said that it is us who can do something for the language . instead of looking at somebody like the state to bring out policies to save kannada , lets be pragmatic and do little things at the personal level.
 
                 hope more and more bloggers bring out issues that affect the state , its people and its language .this community should become  forum for  meaningful discussions and debates .
people can postfilm/book reviews etc ...   KAVI SHYLA,  KUPPALLI
