[ubuntu-us-in] K12 Open Minds in Indy,

Indianapolis will be the site of one of the nation's largest (if not THE
largest) conferences on FOSS in K12 education, the K12 Open Minds
conference Sept 25-27. If you want to know more, go to
http://www.k12openminds.org to find out all about it.
I'm looking to put together a panel discussion session on the
interaction between schools using Linux and Linux Users Groups (and the
wider FOSS community) - what should happen, what can go wrong, what both
sides can offer and what they can gain, etc.
If anyone on this list has any desire to be on such a panel, or knows of
someone, either on the school side or the LUG side, that would be good
for this discussion, please let me know off list.
Disclosure: I have to admit that I don't at the moment know what the
logistics will be - I'm assuming that panelists can come in for this
panel without registering, but that attending other talks, etc. would
involve registering for the conference.
It's also possible that we could set up a small booth/display there. (I
know that Canonical is talking to us about being a sponsor, as is
RedHat.) If there is any interest in this, I can find out the options we
would have for that.
This time for sure!
