[Fwd: Planning Community Based FOSS Event in NYC]
I received this as a board member of SCOSUG (Southern CT OpenSource
UserGroup). I thought the event and meeting may interest the Debian
Events list and so I'm forwarding it along.
Please contact the sender directly as I'm only forwarding this as a
courtesy to them and you. I will not forward any more of these
announcements unless requested to do so.
Sorry for the short notice but I just checked that mail folder today.

> This letter is to inform you and your group's members about current
> plans to try and organize a community based replacement for LinuxWorld
> in NYC. This community driven effort is being organized in NYC and will
> consist of trying to create annual regional FOSS event somewhat
> analogous to "LinuxTag" in Germany, with both speaker tracks that are
> fully open to the public and drawn from the community at large, and
> exhibit space for both commercial and non-commercial entities to use.
> Currently, we are asking for those interested in participating in this
> effort to appoint two delegates. These delegates will meet in NYC on
> Sunday, February 8th, 2004 (see details below) to elect an event
> committee. Each delegate so designated will be given one vote. The
> event committee so chosen will then be empowered to plan and organize
> this event, currently planned for the summer of 2005.
> By having delegates from interested parties choose to select the event
> committee, it is hoped to have a committee that can count on broad
> community support and legitimacy for their efforts, for working with
> corporate sponsors where nessisary, etc.
> We appreciate your time and patience in this effort. Any questions can
> be referred to Lyn Ohira email@example.com
