NYCBUG Planning Meeting January 6, 2004
notes by GEORGE
Much discussion about spiel that will go on lists and www sites. (note
that there were no comments when posted to the list in mid-December).
Main points were emphasis and structure. Meeting title for Feb 4
determined to be "Secure by Default: Learning from OpenBSD." GEORGE
will provide updated version shortly, and all can begin distributing.
HANS will send him copy from today's meeting.
!!!Everyone should have NYCBUG.org aliases to post announcement!!!
Distribution broken down as follows:
* Deja/usenet, covering all BSD and Mac lists, MARC
* Mailing lists, advocacy & chat:
Daemon News, GEORGE
other BUGS, GEORGE
* IRC, KLIMENT
And of course, everyone is encouraged to go through bookmarks and add
to the list. It's a good idea to tell others via list other locations
announcement is posted.
ARON isn't present, he was responsible for fliers for BOF & Feb 4th
Vistaprint.com doesn't do fliers, so GEORGE will talk with ARON about
an alternative. We should need approximately 500. Could order
business cards with NYCBUG and wwww site from Vistaprint.
GEORGE will chair meeting, Don from BSDMall will speak for five
minutes, followed by Wes and Michael on NYCBUG. WES will also do a
book signing and provide "Network Security Illustrated" 50% off. MARC
will deal with refreshments.
KLIMENT will deal with large signs (3) with NYCBUG logo & logos of the
projects, and will send markups to list for review. Fliers & signs
will be at NYPHP & BSDMall tables, at least. All should plan to
volunteer a few hours over the duration of the show.
GEORGE will talk to BSDMall about distributing WES' book, and having
him at BSDMall table for book signing.
SOMEONE (?) will take care of finding bar for informal get together
after January 22nd BOF meeting.
We're getting a bunch of FBSD 4.8 cd's from BSDMall, Michael will speak
to publishers about free books and discounts with lead from HANS.
GEORGE will follow up with ARON about Wasabi. WES will follow up with
Dave Cook at TekServe, also he should mention meeting space.
GEORGE will email Marshall about logo for approval. Possibly redesign
to integrate different BSD variants.
WWW Site Revision
GEORGE & HANS will discuss.
Managed officially by MARC.
Going to stick to aliases, until we can get mail server.
Regular Meeting Space
Temporarily, we will use Sage, but should investigate larger space,
such as TekServe. Free only, as in beer.
Need to plan March 3rd meeting as soon as possible. ARON needs to talk
to Wasabi about BSD & Embedded Systems talk, WES can talk to TekServe
about BSD & OSX talk.
Michael's laptop battle will be posted, possibly using CMS app from
NYPHP. Will also consider a BSD "family watch" similar to Linux
MARC is taking responsibility for organization.
Intel Centrino Open Letter
By Friday, WES will either provide info about this, or another topic.
NYC Vendor BSD List
All will provide ten vendors via TALK to Kliment who will accumulate.
We also should divide up and hit the LinuxExpo vendors.
