Subject Fwd: Promote your project in the Fast Feather Track at ApacheCon US 08
Date Wed, 10 Sep 2008 17:18:03 GMT
I was really hoping to make it to ApacheCon in order to get to meet 
everyone but it is appearing as though that is not going to happen 
this year.  I do think that this would be a great place to talk about 
Photark!  It would be a great place to introduce it to those who have 
no idea what we are doing.  Is there anyone who will be at ApacheCon 
who can do this?  Do others think we should do it?

I will help any way that I can if there is someone to give the 
talk!  Heck, I could even be a talking head on YouTube if no one is 
available to give the talk and if they would allow it.

>ready for showtime and want the world to know, or you're still finding

>What do you get out of it? If you send in your details soon, we'll do

>might even pick up a few new groupie^Wcommitters.
>ApacheCon New Orleans - are you ready, for just about anything?
>Craig & Carsten, your Fast Feather Krewe
>(NB Speaking in the Fast Feather Track does not entitle you to the full

>program, but you won't get your travel, room or registration comped.
>Doesn't make it any less fun though, we promise!)
