Linux.com: Aaron Seigo talks about aKademy and KDE 4

With aKademy now at a close Aaron Seigo spoke to Linux.com for a podcast. "aKademy's conference track, which ran Saturday and Sunday, was different from those of past years, Seigo says. In the past, Seigo says aKademy has had a user-focused conference, but 'this year, we've decided to focus acutely on the technical side of life.' Most of the talks have focused on KDE 4, and speakers have been able to not only discuss their new applications and technologies, but also to demonstrate them."
