Anyone on for helping me to arrange some kind of Linuxey event in Cork
this summer? We haven't done something since the yoke Donncha organised
a few years ago afaicr. Nothing huge like, I'm thinking along the lines
of a small installfest for home users, maybe with a short presentation
on migration from other operating systems (how to get your bookmarks,
contacts and calendar across, for example); and two or three short
business presentations, maybe one from vendors, one from integrators,
and one from businesses that are already using Linux.
We have two major vendors in the area and I think Novell have an office
in Dublin, so it shouldn't be too hard to get some freebies from them,
and maybe a few quid towards invites and other expenses. I'm sure they'd
be happy to put someone forward to do a few minutes; I'd be happy to do
a short bit on migration, and possibly as an "integrator"; and I'm sure
we could twist the arms of people like Michele Neylon and Ruairi Roddy
to step up to the plate for a quickie on how Linux is working for them.
Be nice to have a "keynote"
too, if anyone has any suggestions.
If we sent out invites well in advance and asked for RSVP's, it should
be pretty easy to arrange. But of course we'd need to settle on a
location that wasn't, like, closed a year ago. :)
