Proposals

I'm first going to list all the proposals, then group them, then attempt to schedule them. If you're reading this page now, I think I finished 'listing'. The first division I'll make is between people who will be present in person, and those who will not be attending; feel free to correct if you know you will/will not attend.

Expected to attend

Possibly attending via telephone

Not known to be attending

Events

Donations

  • Michael Stone (michael at laptop.org) has pledged $1000 for speakers
  • Christoph ( christoph at olpcnews.com) has pledged $100 for anyone

Housing

These were people willing to host speakers during XOcamp; they need to be contacted regarding their willingness to host for Sugarcamp.

  • Bill Bogstad can a twin bed in a basement. One person for the entire time period. Confirmed for Sugarcamp.
  • Mel Chua (and Chris Carrick) can take 2 guests (update: both mattresses in our guest room are full, we are housing two guests for Sugarcamp - hurrah!) We do live 15min walking from the airport for those with weird flight times who don't mind air mattresses or the sofa in the living room. (mel at laptop)
  • The Acetarium and its dépendence reserved royal suites for their valued Italian attendees (bernie and marcopg).
  • Tomeu is hosted by Adam and Seth, arriving the 16th at 9.45PM and leaving on the 23rd at 6.05PM.

Adopt a speaker!

These are out-of-town speakers (and links to their proposals) who could present at Sugarcamp.

Please feel free to add anyone I've missed; I just compiled this quickly by scanning emails to devel@ and sugar@ with 'Proposal' in the title. If you're one of the listed developers, please add your location and the approximate cost of airfare, if you can determine it -- or remove yourself if you've made a proposal but aren't actually interested in attending, or can donate your own travel costs. I tried to roughly sort by number of proposals made (talks to be given).
