Hi Frank!

(I'm CC'ing the main ubuntu ireland list aswell.)

Your event sounds interesting. We might be able to do something. Does
anyone on this list, have any ideas/suggestions/want to volunteer?

Could you tell us more about the other attendees? Basically is it all
open source people? Or all computer people? Or just all engineers? It
would be a bit silly to have a talk that introduces Linux if everyone
there is already a linux professional!
