DConf meeting

Funny that you should mention this - how many of the interested DConf people 
are at DesktopCon/OLS at the moment? Simon Law and I just did a presentation 
on DConf here at DesktopCon, and some of the goals, aspirations, and ideas on 
why UniConf addresses a number of the concerns that people have concerning 

We're going to be at the DesktopCon closing party tonight (and probably later 
on at the OLS opening party), and Simon is here all week if anyone missed the 
talk, and wanted to find out more. On the subject of Philip's planned 
meeting, perhaps, if enough interested people are around, we can do a 
combined face to face/online meeting?

Simon will be posting the paper on which we based our talk shortly to 
http://open.nit.ca - I believe he'll post here once he's done that.
