Subject Incubator Lightning Talks at ApacheCon US?
Date Wed, 06 Sep 2006 08:14:03 GMT
Hiya everyone,

At ApacheCon US in Austin next month, we're scheduled to have a two-hour block
for "Incubator Lightning Talks."  (Thursday 4:30-6:30pm)

This time is roughly to do as "we" see fit.

Our initial idea was to have short (15-min?) talks about as many podlings as we
can fit in to the timeslot.  Tell us what the project is about, who is
involved, why I should download it, etc, etc.  You've got 15 minutes to
convince a room full of Apache folks to contribute to your project.  Go forth.

Do folks here agree that this is a good idea?

Do we have any volunteers to help coordinate this?

Do we have podlings that are interested in presenting?

All things considered, I'd give priority to already accepted and active
podlings; but if someone has a proposal they'd like to discuss and we have
space for it, that's cool too.  Heck, if a full ASF project wants to get up
there, that's fine by me, too.  (I don't have a clue what a bunch of TLPs are
actually up to anyway...)

Note that no financial assistance will be provided to speakers in this
lightning session - so you do have to get to Austin on your own.

Thanks!  -- justin
