Hi Stani, Jan, Jon, all
I am Femke's colleague at Constant
-- we'll be organising on this side of the ocean
great to hear there are enthusiasts in BE !
>>> As we work with hotel chains and independent hoteliers alike, in all
>>> categories from 2* to 5* and at all budgets, we can make you a
>>> competitive offer.
>> I think this certainly sounds like a nice offer, but I guess some people
>> (students?) might prefer a youth/budget hostel or such over any "2 star
>> or more hotel"...? ;-)
> I think the organizers are trying to reach a deal with an university.
that company been spamming us before,
but we have no experience in working with them (maybe any of you does ? )
they seem to be geared towards corporate work, and as you know, there
are also quite a few travelling bureaucrats in Brussels
but hey, we could contact them to see what they can do for modest budgets
>> Anyway, I live in Belgium, and if I can make some free time during LGM,
>> I'd be happy to do some volunteer work for the conference.
excellent, when time will come there will probably lots of things to do !
Is there any
>> other place I should subscribe, or is this list the best place to keep
>> updated on things?
> The best is to subscribe to this list. Also you can hang out on irc #lgm.
>> If you want any reference: I've been involved in the Ubuntu project
>> since about 5 years & in Ubuntu Belgium since almost 4 years. Maybe
>> some of you have seen me at the Ubuntu booth at FOSDEM. I'm also part
>> of the GParted project & have been interacting with several other open
>> source projects. I've also got some graphical education, and I've been
>> interested in typography since I was a teenager (even if my type-design
>> until now has been limited to bitmap fonts about 15 years ago ;) ).
> As a Belgian I can confirm that Jan Claes puts a lot of effort in the
> local free software community and organizing. So I can highly
> recommend him. Maybe Jan, you could try to get more volunteers of
> Ubuntu-be involved? In that case the best is to contact Femke of
> Constant vzw, which is coordinating the Brussels LGM. Jan, if you like
> typography, you won't be dissappointed. There is plenty of typography
> related talks on LGM.
>> BTW: if you want, I'm quite sure Guy Duportail from
>> http://www.multiseatcomputer.be/ can provide you with a multiseat system
>> for conference attendees without other means to get on-line. (I can ask
>> him if you want.)
I have seen that set-up in fossdem and similar events, it is beautiful
> Most (if not all) developers bring their laptop. Although the idea was
> to maybe get also public outside the developer community invited. It
> could be useful for that, provided that they run the free graphics
> software of course ;-) But again better coordinate with Femke. As you
> live in Belgium, maybe you can try join an OSP activity to get in
> contact with Femke and the other organizers:
or: you could knock on our door if you happen to be in Bruxsels /
