Current discussions

Bochecha 14:51, 5 October 2008 (UTC) : Im putting here a summary of what we currently discussed by mail. We'll have to clean it up and sort it in the correct place (is this page for public display of the program or for us to organize the IP ?)

  • different stuff for each day ? (saturday for newbies and sunday for the hard geeks ?)

Communicating on the event

  • Blogs / planets
    • coordinate everyone so that articles are publicated not in the same time
  • News paper / sites. Emphasys should be set on press that is not specialized in FOSS
  • Invite some reporters to the event, so that they can write news about it (which will lead to more publicity for next event)
