An LGM type event at SCaLE would be awesome as I am in Los Angeles
(Sorry if I am jumping into this thread late, the title caught my
attention). Or really any localized meetings that happen more frequently
with a focus on free software graphics. I've been meaning to get to a
LGM meeting, but miss it for various reasons.
How many people on this list are in California?
>> If you really wanted to go that way, make it a "Workshop" with
>> tutorials for the various apps and working with them.
>> Alternatively, let the LGM brand grow by letting it go, and support
>> LGMs wherever they arise. The important thing for "the" LGM is the
>> presence of core developers of key projects - but giving teams in
>> other continents the possibility of getting together seems like a
>> great thing to do. What you would need to make it successful is some
>> common branding which people can customise for their event, and a
>> common site top publicise all the other meetings.
> as i wrote some time ago, i am 100% for finding a catchy name for those conferences/meeting/workshop and use it across the world.
> i would be ever happier if it also applies (and i could use it) for the booth we do at openexpo.ch!
> personally, i would prefer to have a name which is similar to LGM, but not use LGM itself for it: on the one side to protect the uniqueness of the LGM and on the other because the ones are more a conference / workshop than a meeting (the goal is probably to show LG and not to get the LG people to meet together).
> and i see no problem in publicizing the LG? on the LGM site...
> good night!
