Other ideas for your parties

  • SFD Start-up guide: lots of info on preparing an event, needs to be "GNOME adapted"

  • Stream entire launch / presentation from one location

  • If streaming is unreliable because of internet connections - send Video ahead of time to organizer.
  • Setup stations at remote locations installed with Gnome 3 for people to play around.
  • PC vendors could be solicited to setup booths @ remote locations with 3 to 7 PCs
    • Pitch: Vendors could pick campuses they would like to sponsor the party and setup a booth.
    • Could offer student, employee discounts for folks attending he launch party
    • Cheap and nice opportunity to get in front a captive crowd
    • Could sponsor food & beverages

    • Nice stage for recruiting pitch as that would be recruiting season too (allows more free-bees from firms at these parties)
    • Need volunteers (possibly alums) from Dell, HP, IBM, etc who can help coordinate with HR and marketing folks.
