T h e O p e n M o k o P r o j e c t
Sean Moss-Pultz and Harald Welte
Tuesday, 10th April, 4:00pm
Hotel Chancery, Lavelle Road
OpenMoko (http://openmoko.org) is the world's first integrated Open Source
Mobile Communication Platform. OpenMoko is supposed to run on all kinds of
Linux-capable mobile phones. The first fully supported OpenMoko phone is
the FIC Neo1973.
Sean Moss-Pultz of FIC is the Program manager and driving force behind the
Harald Welte is... ummm.. he's done so much for the FOSS community,
maybe it's better if you just read about him here:
They are going to show off their baby, explain what makes it tick, and how
it works, and how you can get involved in this high-visibility project.
They will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
The event is open to (almost) everyone who is interested in OpenMoko and
wants to learn more about the project. This event is developer oriented,
and of interest to people who wish to contribute to the project at system
(Linux), UI (gtk) or application level.
The "almost" in the paragraph above stems from the fact that no more than
100 people will fit in the venue, and it is therefore first come, first
There is no cover charge, but you will have to register by sending your
name to openmoko-event@... latest by Monday, the 9th of April - only
people who register and who receive a confirmation can attend.
Sorry about that, but we have to take into account that the venue can only
hold a fixed number of people, and that we have to tell the hotel in
advance how many people will be coming (for the snacks and tea/coffee
after the event).
We are grateful to Geodesic Information Systems Limited, who have kindly
agreed to cover the expenses of the event.
So if you are interested in embedded/mobile Linux, the OpenMoko project,
and the future of mobile communication, then please send your name to
Please spend some time going through the material at http://openmoko.org

And if any of you have already started developing for the platform (you
know who you are), please let us know so that we can highlight this during

- Good Morning,
I am very much interested to be a part of the event.
The only thing is the time, it is at 4'o clock in afternoon.
Is it feasible to dump my office work and head for the event, which is purely my personal matter ....
If there is any scope for reschedule the timing at least at 6.30 pm ?? May be it sounds too much selfish, but it is a fact.

However, unfortunately, various issues with the venue(s) just made it
impossible for us to have the meeting later in the evening.
