Summits, Conferences and Meetups workgroup - 2019-08-30

  1. Guus Is there a reason to not ask Cisco for hosting the Summit again?
  2. Guus if not, I'll get on that right now
  3. SouL I think the space gets tiny with previous attendance, somebody said we could make it bigger somehow? Moving some wall, I think
  4. Guus Depending on attendance, yes
  5. Guus but for started, let's see if they want to host us again
  6. ralphm It can be bigger indeed
  7. Guus (unless we want to go somewhere else this year - don't know why, but I thought I'd check before getting in touch wiht them)
  8. ralphm The back wall hides another area
  9. SouL Great
  10. SouL Guus, not complaining at all :)
  11. ralphm Anyway, +1 on Cisco
  12. SouL Just talking out loud
  13. SouL yeah, agree
  14. ralphm Also liked the hoodie room
  15. Guus who wants to be in the CC of my email correspondence with Cisco?
  16. ralphm Guus: me
  17. ralphm You just beat me to it
  18. Guus MUWHAHAAHA!
  19. Guus or something
  20. daniel If we make the room even bigger we will have a problem hearing each other I'm afraid
  21. daniel I mean if we have to make it bigger because more people are coming that's a good thing.
  22. Guus let's worry about that once we get a feeling of the number of people that'll show up this year
  23. daniel But maybe we should reconsider the microphone idea
  24. SouL more than one maybe, spreaded through the room
  25. daniel we should probbaly go over the 'summit retro' minutes from last year and see what of the improvement ideas we can do / need to do well ahead
  26. daniel i'll probably start looking into "my first summit/how to summit" and the advertisement a bit myself
  27. daniel as those go hand in hand; i mean publishing a 'how to summit' can act as advertisement
  28. Guus Winfried wrote such an article
  29. daniel oh. link?
  30. Guus
  31. Guus I need to spend my attention to other things right now, sorry
  32. Guus I'll try to circle back later today
  33. daniel i kinda would also like to address the 'diversity' issue; but i don’t know how. aside from explicitly inviting the two only woman i know from the xmpp community
  34. ralphm With regards to the microphone, I think that was primarily an issue with the installed system. In other years this was better, and I'll ask Rudy about it when we are closer to the actual date.
  35. Guus I got an OOO from our contact at Cisco
  36. ralphm Plenty of time
  37. Guus Yes, realizing that brought me back from my panic. 🙂
  38. Guus Soooooooo.... you're contemplating how many dame blanches you'll have? 🙂
  39. SouL Already? :D
  40. ralphm At least one.
  41. Guus SouL if you ever need leverage with ralphm, then "Dame Blanche" is the magic word 🙂
  42. ralphm Or, as we prefer to call it: "Yeah!"
  43. SouL takes notes on that one.
