Yes, that parking lot is a nice size, but I'm afraid the date is
a bit inflexible now; Red Hat just wrote me to say they'll definitely
be here Tuesday Nov 12th. I'm kind of leaning towards the kind
of places that Eric Raymond spoke at a couple years ago - those
seminar rooms at Caltech and USC were about the right size.
(Can someone from Caltech or USC volunteer to check on availability?)
Red Hat suggested a round table style event; I'm trying to find
university or corporate IT managers who would like to participate.
The topic should probably be something like
"What's stopping us from deploying Linux at our organization"
Red Hat's engineers would be there to answer questions, and perhaps
take feedback back home.
If you're a CIO, IT manager, or a system administrator for > 50 desktops,
and you'd like to be on the panel, please write me at dank@...
It'll be a public event, and I'll try to arrange for a big crowd...
