Hi all -
The Open Source Systems Interest Group (OSSIG) is planning an OSS Pavilion
in the vendor space at ALA-Atlanta. This is a large undertaking, and we need
some help. I put out a couple of informal calls for assistance about a month
ago; this is a more formal call for volunteers.
We need the following to have a successful pavilion:
1) Physical Space - We need either donated space from ALA, or sponsorship to
pay for our space. If anyone has any contacts with possible sponsors, please
let me know. Additionally, we need sponsors to help pay for internet
connections and electricity.
2) Physical Volunteers ;-) - Not so much in physique, but as live bodies
who can demonstrate OSS as relates to libraries, answer OSS-related
questions, and have a lot of fun doing it.
3) Help with planning the actual pavilion event - To be successful, we will
need to build a website that allows us to easily demonstrate OSS from the
pavilion. Additionally, ideas about scheduled events (such as Eric Lease
Morgan showing how easy it is to install MyLibrary@...) at the pavilion
would be greatly appreciated.
That's it to start. I know this might seem a bit early, but it isn't - the
planning and details need to be started on now, in order for us to be able
to pull this off.
