SCALE, the Southern California Linux Expo, is currently planning for
our 10th annual event which will take place in January 2012. We are
currently looking for volunteers who might be interested in helping
with creating our printed conference program guide. A few members on
the CREATE list suggested we try posting here.
Unfortunately, one of SCALE's dirty secrets is that many of our
printed materials have been created with InDesign and other
proprietary software rather than free software the past few years.
Being an event focused on free software and free culture, we would
like to change this. Almost everything else about SCALE is done with
free or open-source software. So this year we would like to move to
free software like Inkscape, Scribus, etc to create our program guide,
signs, and other printed materials as well.
SCALE draws about 2,000 attendees annually to LA, with each attendee
receiving a copy of these printed materials.
If you are interested in helping out with SCALE or the SCALE Program
guide, please send us an email at ilan at socallinuxexpo.org.
We appreciate any tips and/or help you might be able to provide.
Design a logo for SCALE 10X, win a trip to LA for SCALE 10x!
