> Hello OCLUG,
> I am Teresa Baldwin, the Community Manager of FOSSLC. We, along with
> Ottawa U IEEE Chapter, are putting on a open source programmer's
> conference on August 27th and an OpenStreetMap mapping party on the
> 28th. We are proud to announce that we are getting speakers like
> Richard Weait (OSM), Mike Shaver (Mozilla Foundation founder),
> Christopher "Monty" Montgomery (Ogg/Vorbis creator) and Richard
> Stallman (GNU, Free Software Foundation). More information can be
> found here: http://www.fosslc.org/drupal/sc2011
> The project that we'd like to propose is thus: we'd like to be able to
> bring in people that wouldn't otherwise be able to go to the
> conference. Students, unemployed, or underemployed, who would be
> helped by going to the conference and learning about the open source
> tools that are out there and what people are doing with them. We are
> looking to help cover our costs, as we are serving snacks, lunch and
> have an evening event at the NAC.
> If accepted for funding, we would offer a few gratis tickets to OCLUG.
> Thank you for your time.
