I'm currently the manager for the Utah Open Source Conference 2010 and
wanted to invite you all to attend. There are quite a few good
presentations, including some Fedora specific ones. Jared Smith, the
new FPL and Karsten Wade of Community Architecture, will be presenting
and keynoting during the conference. You can also peruse other
presentations on our schedule page.
If you are interested in attending UTOSC 2010 is has Early Bird
registration through this Saturday, Sept 25, 2010. If you sign up for
the 'Full Access Pass' and use the promo code 'FDRA', the cost will be
just $35 for the entire three day event. Visit
http://attend.utosc.com to register today. Remember, prices go up
after this Saturday, so register soon.
In addition, I know that Larry Cafiero will be at the conference and
will be running the Fedora booth (he's also presenting). If you wish
to help him at the booth, the price for attending UTOSC 2010 reduces
to $0, nil, nada! Just send Larry an email at lcafiero at
fedoraproject-dot-org and put your name on the Event Page.
We look forward to seeing you all at UTOSC 2010.

I have begun thinking about media production, and I would like to suggest
something that wasn't in sight so far as I know. Maybe this isn't true, but
if we could spare some money, then it could be worthy. I don't know there is
a possibility to create multiboot discs - but this is something that really
could be a hit. Why?
How about to have an such discs where the media contains not only one
desktop environment, else at least 4 of it... 4 LiveCD, the primary leading
spins including with gnome based version with an common GRUB packed onto
*one* bootable DVD. This could provide more wide spectrum to our users, with
this (possibly) also reduced the amount of discs, and smaller natural
footprint (less trash). Also could be an option to reduce this when we
choose for storage 8 cm MiniDVD's, and smaller packaging. I know this is
less storage for our packages - but 2.8 Gigs it's still enough for a bunch
of spins, or alternates.
If I continue this thoughts, this could result also an collectible version
of Fedora where an 2 discs booklet contains at least 8 (yes eight) bootable
and installable Fedora taste altogether. What do you think guys?
PS: I know that we keep CD-s for the most biggest compatibility, but
reducing the produced amount maybe gives back cash..... and DVD readers
nowadays are also cheap....
Who else will be available to attend?
