2009.04.20 Meeting Notes
Davis Public Library
- Installfests — Still no venue has been found for our
- LERT — No news.
- Library — A number of books (which CSU Bakersfield were
not interested in) were brought to tonight's meeting as free give-aways.
The remaining books are still in Henry's possession, and none that CSUB
want have been shipped, yet.
- Whole Earth Festival - WEF takes place May 10-12 at UC Davis.
An application has been submitted. Nick finally got ahold of someone at
WEF today, but they said they will call him back.
If we are accepted, we'll need volunteers to burn CDs and staff the booth.
- CommunityOne Conference & OSCON - It's possible for LUGOD
(either alone, or with other LUGs) to get a ".org booth" at both
the CommunityOne Conference (which takes place simultaneously with
Sun's JavaOne) in San Francisco on June 1st-3rd, and
O'Reilly's Open Source Convention (OSCON) in San Jose, July 20th-24th.
If you have an opinion, or would like to offer to help organize
and/or staff such boothes, please post a note to LUGOD's
'vox-outreach' mailing list.
- Venue needed - The Davis branch of the Yolo County Library
will be undergoing renovation soon. UC Davis may be suitable for
summer months (no parking fee and no crowds). Alex has mentioned that
city facilities appear to be $20/hr (which is cheaper than the $40+/hr
Bill remembers the Veterans Memorial Center charged, before we had the
Library as our main venue). Gilbert mentioned that
the Davis Mac Users Group meets at the Senior Center for free, and
will provide more details and the DMUG contact to Bill over email.
