IRC Connection...

Michael and I talked Friday night... seed sponsors, locations, dates, timing, formats, 3rd party conference organizers... we talked about a little of this and a little of that. A hotel sized conference... vendors, booths, investors, users, customers...

Let's hook up this week on IRC and start to drill down on details. Anybody who wants to join us, leave a contact email in the comments and I'll send you the connect time and place. Not being coy, just haven't finalized it with Suw, Michael and Wendy.

Usual questions apply

I guess what we need to do is put together a document outlining what we are intending to do.

Questions I think we need to answer:

- What is the event? What is it about? What's the focus?
- Who's the audience? Who will attend?
- Who are the (preferred) speakers? What are they speaking on?
- Where will it be? Potential venues? What facilities will they need?
- When will it be? We've already posited a date, but is that doable?
- How will we promote it?
- What will the budget be?
- Who might sponsor? What will they expect?
- Who will organise it? What tasks need to be done? Who will do them?

I'm sure there are other questions - please add to the list!

Where are we now?

I've traded a few voice mails and have a sense that the engines of this great vehicle are coughing and sputtering... may catch and roar to life, or may die with a few pitiful hacks, coughs, wheezes. But let's keep it going for a bit.

Michael, can you hear this? What's next? Suw?

Supernova/Skype anyone?

I'm going to be in San Francisco from 8th til 23rd June for Supernova, so if anyone is in that area and wants to meet for a drink and discussions, feel free to email me.

Otherwise, might it be an idea to organise a Skype conference call to discuss where we are at and who's doing what? Always so much easier to talk than type.
