I don't know how many readers know this, but my very first Linux Journal column ("Browse the Web without a Trace", January 2008) was about how to set up and use Tor. Anonymity and privacy on the Internet certainly take on a different meaning in the modern era of privacy-invading software and general Internet surveillance.
Another Source engine powered game plans to support Linux soon with a migration to a more updated version of Source. Dino D-Day is touted as being like Counter Strike only with Nazi troopers and dinosaurs. If that didn't peak your interest then I don't know what will.
To promote this influential open source conference, put on by Tim O'Reilly and O'Reilly Media since 1999, Opensource.com is interviewing some of the speakers from the line-up prior to the event.
