Subject Geronimo BOF at ApacheCon : Tuesday, Dec 13, 2005 - 8:30pm
Date Thu, 08 Dec 2005 15:45:06 GMT
We have a BOF slot at ApacheCon 2005.  We have 60 minutes, so I'd  
like to see if we can pre-plan what we do and structure it a bit.   
Aaron was interested in presenting something, and I'm sure others are  
as well.

So maybe we do something like 2-3 10 minute slots for formal  

I'd really like to try doing "Geronimo Lightning Talks".  It would  
work like this :

1) Anyone interested in speaking for 5 (five) minutes on any topic  
related to Geronimo, serious or funny, technical or not, will put  
their name on a slip of paper into a hat.  I'll bring a hat.

2) We choose names at random from the hat, and when your name is  
called, you have 5 minutes to talk, including the time to get to the  

3) At the 5 minute mark, you will leave the front or be manhandled  
off stage by our documentation goons.

You can do this in pairs.  Humor is appreciated.  Any topic is  
welcome, but please have some [tenuous] relationship to Geronimo.

If you aren't used to talking in public, this is a great chance to  
try it.  It's only for 5 minutes, it gets people a chance to know you  
and what you are doing, and it really is an informal, fun setting...
