No. I have been talking with Sarah Jones from Red Hat who does
events, and I thought we were going to get some support but I haven't
heard from her in some time.
I'd be very interested in making contact on either front. Can you help?

The NECC website is at http://center.uoregon.edu/ISTE/NECC2006/. This
is the second year I've been asked to lead the Open Source effort
there, and the first year that our presenters are actually listed in
the program as full speakers. It's significant progress, and came out
of providing a similar lineup at the cue.org show in Palm Springs some
Thank you Steve,
As a start, I'm forwarding your email to Fedora Ambassadors and Fedora
Marketing mailing lists to get an attention. Once we have enough
interests and resources, we should be able to find someone to help
your event and promote Fedora Project at the same time.
If there are any Fedora ambassadors in Toronto who would be interested in
leading up a Fedora presence at LinuxWorld Toronto next week, please
Red Hat is going to have a presence there, and is willing to offer help
with budget and coordination, but we need to find some bodies who can
actually represent Fedora in our space.
There will be an opportunity to give a talk about Fedora as well, if
someone wants to do that. :-)
This is a fast-moving target and opportunity, so if you're a Fedora person
in the area with the desire and ability to help, make yourself known ASAP.

Thanks for taking over--I really appreciate your help!
I have had a small emergency at work (and I while am in the office, my
paid job unfortunately always goes before my Fedora duties) and had to
take care of that. I only got my head above water again now.
Thank you Thomas once again, and my apologies for the sudden
disappearance. I will try not to let it happen again.
