Does everyone get the importance of this post and the related tasks?
This looks interesting.
I think Cesar, Edwin, Ernesto, Javier, Manuel, and Pedro don't understand what you mean by "Participation is mandatory". :-)
Well, I made my mind about writing the abstract and presenting SNAPPIX long before it was mandatory, you should know that, I told you.
No one had responded to Kevin's comments, so when I posted that, I included everyone.
But yeah, I had forgotten you had mentioned it.
What do you plan to be presenting about SNAPPIX?
Well, what I have in mind is to give them a little bit of background history on why was it created, plug the SNAP Platform here a little bit, future plans and how can it be useful to students, developers and even an university to use on a course. But then again, the way I have it on my mind, it might be too specific to a certain crowd and I don't want that. I gotta sit down and think of way to share my thougths in a way that can be enjoyed by everyone.
I was thinking of speaking to some of my family members and friends who don't know anything about....anything, tell them about SNAPPIX, check their reactions and take note of their questions, I think this might be a good way to get ready for a crowd and generate more ideas.
I got more stuff on my mind but I just can't express them right, I guess that by talking to people I will be able to get them out and get a clear idea of what I should do.
I think you're on the right track, speaking with friends and family to see what questions they ask, and using that for material. Good idea.
I am going to do it about "Eclipse Platform in Snap and Snappix" how it work with our platform and the benefits. However i made my applications there.
Kevin let me know what you think about it.

Edwin - Good
Javier - Good
Ernesto - Not so good
Lenny - Not so good
Manuel - Excused
Pedro - Excused, I guess. If he has Internet, I don;t know why he can't post an idea
Maybe cuz he's actually ON VACATION?
I'm getting a room with Internet connectivity while on vacation in PA after OSCON. I'll post in the forums while I'm out there, to help keep the stats up. And I'll check email and work on SNAP Platform stuff. But I'm sure as hell not going to be posting all day and working all day. I'm going to be on vacation.
I bet he feels the same way.
Sorry for my late L-A-T-E reponse. Being missing this forum due to configuration problems heh. I'll be preparing mine in the following days :-)
Here's my optional title "Building the Web the Open Source Way" mmm is catchy don't ya think?
I like it, Lenny.
And don't worry about the freaky scary talk in that sample abstract. That's because that student is a nerd and doesn't have a life. It's chemistry dude, not PHP.
Just talk about what you know, and I'm sure everybody will know you're the Einstein of the web in PR. They think the web is drag and dropped with Dreamweaver, or worse, Frontpage. They don't know shit.
ahh mmm does anyone noticed that we have to pay to be there? whats the deal with that?
Are we in the right track? here's the sample abstract and TBH is freaking scary...Im no Albert Einstein. Anyways don't misunderstand my comments, im up for the chanllenge. Im sure we could fill our lines with crap like that thatwe'll lost them asap but at first I thought was way more simplier. Does anyone found the duration of each speech?
oops , here's the link for the sample :-)
I am working on it.
Anyways im posting here again to have the post accesible for those who are INTERESTED in making their presentation so they can review the info.
I've posted my abstract to the action item, if anyone wants to look at it. And if anyone is interested I can help by doing some peer review of their presentations.
