Re: Interested in participating in Women in FLOSS @ EuroOSCON

It went pretty well, I think. We ran out of time again (I always try to turn these into roundtables instead of panels, and the audience gets excited to participate and then we run out of time...but there's a method to my madness. I'm trying to get O'Reilly to start scheduling 1/2 day "mini-summit" bookings for this topic at future conferences).

Here are a couple of blogs about how it went (some can be babblefished)...


I've also done two interviews as a result of the session, so keep an eye out (one in Germany and one in the UK).

Hi Danese, everyone,

I have been asked (again) to hold a panel on that perennial

many of you Debian women don't attend OSCON because of cost, but I've
gotten O'Reilly to offer a limited number of gratis passes.

I'm sincerely hoping one or more of you will come to Amsterdam to
speak.  I'm not sure I should keep representing what Debian-Women is
doing that is positive without living, breathing proof :-).


p.s. The panel is Thursday the 20th from 10:45 - 11:30am.

How did the panel go?  How many women were there?

I'm sorry that, as far as I know, none of the Debian Women people were able to make it. But I hope it went well anyway, and I'm sure that others on the list
besides myself would appreciate a brief report back about it.
