I realize this is a bit offtopic, but I feel that all the local New
York tech groups are part of an extended family, and that anything we
can do to extend that family, and increase awareness of open source
software is a good thing.

One side note: The debian userspace is available for FreeBSD and
NetBSD, so I am not completely offtopic. :)
FreeBSD: http://www.debian.org/ports/kfreebsd-gnu/ NetBSD:

I am a member of the local team preparing a bid to host DebConf10 in
New York City, and can really use some volunteers now to help with
planning, and later to help with logistics.

Here is the info for the bid:


Here is the video from DebConf8 where Jimmy Kaplowitz first presented
the draft of the bid.


We have a few short months to flesh out a draft.

If you are interested, please register for the DebianNYC mailing list
and post your interest to the list.

We will be meeting here occasionally: IRC://irc.debian.org/debconf-nyc
Feel free to stop by and introduce yourself.

Also feel free to forward this to any interested parties.


P.S. - The DebianNYC user group gets together every month or two, so
if you are interested in joining other users and devs in the Debian
family, feel free to join.
