Please pass this to any Linux User Group or Open Source user group who
is able/willing to assist.... especially CALUG.
I would like to start some discussions about FOSE. We have a booth
1507, a 10’ x 10’ booth with a draped table, 2 chairs, carpeting, a
waste basket, electrical service (1 quad box or power strip) and 2
wireless internet connections. FOSE is scheduled for 23-25 March at the
DC Convention Center. tux.org has participated for many years with the
booth being donated by the show organizers. We are fortunate to again
to be able to participate.
The FOSE wiki is up for sign ups. This year, though, we are looking for
volunteers in three ways - to man the booth, configure demo applications
and to reach out to vendors for swag - magazines, CD/DVDs, etc...
I am looking to demonstrate Linux and other Open Source efforts that
will help with Technology Solutions for the Business of Government (in
line with FOSE's tagline). If we created a demo of a tux.org enterprise
with a variety of applications that would interest business &
government, I believe it would be extremely advantageous. Some sample
demos could be
Web (OpenID for the
The list is huge - that is the point. The items I listed are not the
only ones - simply representative. The goal is to demo things the
attendees would benefit in seeing. I suggest we use the wireless
connections at FOSE to reach back to the "tux.org enterprise."
I am looking for volunteers who can help set things up to be
professional and beneficial for attendees. his is an opportunity to
learn something new. We can setup an OpenLDAP with folks in the
enterprise and integrate, where possible, the various applications.
