Dear Mario and Mark,

I have always been fascinated by the Grace Hopper conference but I
have never attended. Please count me as interested.

Just in case others are interested, I have cross-posted.

In 2010, Stormy Peters somehow procured a table for Free Software
at-large. She then sent out an email blast which included
women at lists.fedoraproject.org  I don't know if anything came of it.
Does anybody know?

I believe that Fedora is a great fit for Grace Hopper conference. The
audience demographic tends to be academic. Free Software is great for
doing research. Too much valuable time is wasted applying for grants
to gratis proprietary software and monitoring the quantity of seats
consumed. Why bother when Fedora is the freshest software out there?

Thanks for getting this started. I plus one the idea of Fedora at
Grace Hopper 2012!

Thanks,

Beth Lynn Eicher
