What are we doing for OSCon and the SouthEast LinuxFest conferences?

Last year our PGDay at OSCon was lightly attended, and we didn't have a
booth at the conference due to delays in booth approval.  Are we going
to do either of these this year?  Now that talks have been accepted, it
is time for us to decide:

I will not be attending OSCon this year due to lack of travel funding,
but I will be attending the SouthEast LinuxFest in Charlotte, North
Carolina, which is a new event for me:

There will also be an OpenSQL Camp as part of the conference:

Won't be attending OSCON, but if I were, I'd be up for booth duty
there (as it felt very strange *not* to have one at OSCON). I think
one of the main problems with PGDay is the competing with the
leadership conference; I'd almost rather not have PGDay and have a
bigger BOF.

Re: SELF: I should be able to help with booth detail there (at least
on Saturday, if nothing else). I've been to one SELF before (having
somewhat infamously brought a tuba for booth bling); it's a fairly
nice conference (and seems to be growing in popularity every year). I
look forward to seeing you there! :)

I attended the Leadership conference once and was not impressed, but of
course that conference is not targeted at me.

I attend few generic open source conferences, but found that the
conference I attended in Montreal was much more interesting than OSCON,
I think because it was more practical and less focused on cutting-edge
stuff:

My point was just that we should decide now what we want to do at OSCon,
rather than waiting until it is too late.

Yes, I am looking forward to it.  I think they are announcing speakers
in the next week or two, and I submitted some presentations.

Gabrielle and I can handle doing something for the BOF.  It would
coincide with the regular pdxpug meeting.

As for the booth, if I can get a partner to help (Gabrielle is not
available), then I think we can handle that.

Regards,
Mark

OK, it seems I now do have travel funding and _will_ be attending OSCON,
so I will be around to help in any way I can.

Is there anyone else local you can round up for booth duty?  I'll be there, I'll be speaking, and I'd like to have 4-5
committedvolunteers before we commit to a booth.

I'll see what I can do. (I did run a PG booth solo at SELF before, but
it's significantly larger now [plus, we want to look our best].)

I've submitted the requests to OSCON for the booth, and the BOF for
Wednesday night.  We're supposed to hear about the booth by May 17th.
Will keep everyone posted.
