If we are not going for funnel, we need some volunteers to do a simple
registration form for speakers as well as delegates. We have been trying
to build this for last many years, but it never got to a usable form.

You can see the previous attempt here
https://gitorious.org/minidebconfindia/metoo I don't know how complete
or incomplete it is. Can someone give it a try?

Once the registration site is ready, lets give a call for papers far and
wide. We can always invite people we know personally as well.

Manukrishnan on hosting diaspora (podmin view)
Ershad/Abhineet on ruby on rails/ contributing to diaspora code
Akhil on Access to Knowledge and Aaron Schwartz

actually we should invite all smc gsoc students to present their work
Vasudev Kamath/Kartik Mistry on debian-in
Manoj/Hrishi on wiki projects
Anivar on surveillance and internet freedom
