Meeting Protocol


Ambassadors, please type your meeting agenda here.



<fabian_a> There is a project called Fedora EventBox
<fabian_a> i think for small events this would be very useful....for big events like Linuxtag not
<fabian_a> for events which are covered by one or two person
<fabian_a> the problem will be the money for this....and the delivery to the locations
<bogomil> +1
<Pingoomax> i'm quite agree with this
<Pingoomax> in small events, there are few ambassadors
<Pingoomax> they can't provides all stuff by their own
<Pingoomax> the real problem is delay
<Pingoomax> if a set is readdy, it easier to ship it quickly
<FrancescoUgolini> Yes, it's a usefull tool. Personally i think if we coordinate this project
something good can be done
<FrancescoUgolini> We can create a timetable, where people ask for material
<FrancescoUgolini> and then you can easly manage this
<Pingoomax> i think we have to go step by step
<Pingoomax> providing computer is a bit hard
<Pingoomax> at first we can make a small event box
<Pingoomax> with flyers, banners, (t-shirt) goodies, and of course dvds
<Pingoomax> we all have pcs that we can bring to events
<Pingoomax> it's better to have a small set that we can send quicly to ambassadors
<Pingoomax> than a really big an great one which is really hard to send
<bogomil> +1
<kanarip> +1 Pingoomax
<kital> i think the only thing what we should provide is a "guide" how to build a booth (where he
can put things with good effects)
<Pingoomax> +1
<kital> every event should have a table
<kital> a wall
<kital> a bit clue band
<kital> and our artwork has a short lifecycle so Banners must produce every time new
<kital> therefore we are ambassadors to organize by our own and react flexible on the given situation
<FrancescoUgolini> +1
<FrancescoUgolini> KageSenshi
<KageSenshi> +1
<KageSenshi> adding a lil bit to kital suggestion ...
<KageSenshi> in each countries theres a few ambassadors ..
<KageSenshi> some stuff can be provided by the ambassadors themselves
<KageSenshi> i'm suggesting every country have their own eventbox whch they make themselves to use among
them .. with the international eventbox as a compliment to it
<FrancescoUgolini> KageSenshi, what you say is correct, the problem is that a country event box is usefull
only for country with more than 5 ambassadors
<fabian_a> standard-banners can reused....
<fabian_a> i think after linuxtag there will be a lot of stuff in germany
<fabian_a> i think that this stuff can reused at events in other european countries
<FrancescoUgolini> +1
<KageSenshi> +1
<kital> +1
<kanarip> has anyone ever considered contacting a world-wide express delivery company with all this
sending back and forth of materials, and get some account with a nice discount (sponsoring?)
or something?
<FrancescoUgolini> kanarip, i think we have to do this :)
<KageSenshi> +1
<kital> i think the eventbox "guide" could contain expiriences like "to stick the dvd on a desk so the
people must ask" or "to produce templates for flyers" you can put on the desk
<kital> eof
<kanarip> FrancescoUgolini, include the free media program as well, maybe there's other SIGs / Projects
that would need such an account / send a lot of stuff
<FrancescoUgolini> yes, i think guide is the most usefull thing, becaumse many time people don't know
how to use their material
<FrancescoUgolini> kanarip,  yes, we will do this.
<romal> Tomorrow is a party for schools and pupils.
<romal> We will show gcompris and other tools for kids on several Fedora and Ubuntu systems.
