We, with Peter and Dave, are currently trying to fix the website issue.
I have already updated the forms for LGM 2012. When the website is up
again, the registering form will be available. Also, we will have a form
for submitting talks.
I completely support the idea of Ale being a "local" organiser as he's a
bit free, speaks german and other languages too! :-) And, mostly, he knows
LGM from the interior as he's been on the organising team for years now,
remotely and locally.
I also offer to give a strong hand — at least with the website and with the
sponsors. I can plan my trip to Vienna to be there a few days before LGM
starts to help with the last details.
I wish that Nate and Jon can give a hand with the press releases and more
About money, we will start the new campaign with over 5K in the bank.
The pledgie campaign should be put on again this year with a 10K target
starting in Feb.
We should try to get public funding from the EU provided we act fast.
The needs for covering travel fees are around 20K when in Europe.
I am in discussions with OIF. It is too early to tell whether they will
help us again this year but we do have a good ear from them.
Same with Google.
We keep the logo as it is, only update the city and dates.
That's it for today !
Cheers guys !
Happy New Year to all of you !
