Now that Flock 2014 has wrapped up, it's time to start talking about 2015.
We'll be back in North America, so if you'd like to host next year's event
in your city, it's time to start putting together a bid. To find out how,
read the wiki page:
Keep in mind that committing to plan a conference is a lot of work and
shouldn't be approached lightly. It's a significant time commitment, and as
the local contact, you're critical to the success of the event.
Historically we have held Fedora events on college campuses simply for the
reason that this is often free space if we know a student or faculty member
there, but it is not a requirement that we be on a campus if we can find
other affordable space.
Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions or need help
getting your bid together.

I've managed a fair deal about video (and audio) streaming and recording.
Here's the deal:
- we will have 4 cameras available from AVC*, for free
- one technician from AVC will supervisor *us* recording the talks and
workshops (for 150 CZK per hour, i.e. ~ 370 USD total)
- we will provide volunteers that would control the cameras during the
talks (aim it at the speaker)
- we need to provide one PC with at least i5 CPU and one USB3 port
(laptop is fine), they need to install their OS to do some magic - I
guess Red Hat Brno might provide this?
- the video will be instantly available on youtube
- if we don't want to volunteer, we can pay for 4 cameramen and do
nothing (~ 1480 USD), but I think that's not necessary.
If everyone is OK with that, I can set up a wiki page for volunteers, as
it was last year.
* AVC is the audiovisual center of the university
Due to an issue with my name on the flight ticket, I have to delay my flight.
I will travel in next 12 hours arrive Prague airport at 10:40am August 6th.
Could you please move my talk "Improving Mentors program" from 6th morning to a free slot in the afternoon or the next day(s).
I'm going to repeat the "you can just sshow up" note since we seem to be
getting that question a lot. Anything else I should say? Anything particular
to highlight? (Keynotes, maybe?)

I have WiFi credentials for big rooms:
I guess that username means SSID ;)
I'll do my best for having the same credentials in small rooms as well.
