Maemo Summit 2009/Organization


[edit] Conference checklist

Organisation of the conference splits nicely into a number of distinct subsets. Quim Gil did a really great job of tracking the organisation of the Maemo Summit 2008, which made coming up with this list much easier:

[edit] Live blogging

jsmanrique says:

I think there should/could be:
  • Two people for posting photos and briefing for each talk in a blog (will be there a summit webpage?)
  • On each talk there should be at least one person posting on twitter/ about what's happenning (creating a microblogging chat), also linked to summit webpage
  • IRC channel on Freenode.

it seems like ubuntu will be rolling out a micro blogging aggregator for UDS Karmic..there is a mock up here ..seems like it is just some javascript and reg ex parsing so maybe it is a good idea to do something like this for the maemo summit ?

[edit] Live streaming

Several solutions:

  • Qik for live streaming from mobile phone (Nokia has already use it on an event)
  • Fluendo technologies?

[edit] Post Summit Recordings

Recordings will need to be posted online after the event. For this there should be at least one individual recording as many talks, happenings, back stage stuff, as possible. This will need to be edited afterward and posted to an online video delivery site such as vimeo ( I have full editing facilities available with HD recording equipment so hopefully this years coverage will be much better than last years.
