FOSDEM 2005 Call for DevRooms and booths.

More presence...

It's that time of year again. The good guys that take on the organisation of FOSDEM have set the date for the 5th edition of this great event: February 26 and 27, 2005. Of course they have already been working hard behind the screens, and now it is time for them to get the community involved again. So they have issued a Call for Presence Developers Rooms and Booths.

Last year, I arranged for a Jabber Software Foundation booth. Although I could not attend at the very last moment, the booth turned out to be a mild success, and I think we should have a booth again for the 2005 edition. Further, they are asking for Presence Developers Rooms, so who better to ask than people dealing with presence every day? I want to apply for one, but I do need ideas to use the room (presentations, tutorials, hackfest, etc.) and people to support me in running it. Contact me if you have ideas and/or want to help out!

Of course I'll also be collaborating with the FOSDEM organisation to use Jabber during the event in the form of Jabber chat rooms and the like, like last year, with the FOSDEM Jabber server.
