oh..you mean to say that Freedom-IT is totally another expo
other than the Orgcom??
another idea...put up a FAQ at freedom-it.com.
what surprises me most is that till nylxs came up with an lake placid visit, no one was talking in
NY, suddenly we find a BSD guy doing everything, a Lisp guy scheming, a confidential
data monger bugging everyone....hehe...i am just kidding....
but now we have 2 competing? (complementing ) expos in NY? how are we gonna pull that off?
what does the free software ppl say when asked about open source ppl? (not open enough?)
what would the orgcom ppl say about freedom-it? (too much freedom?)
and why are NYLXS ppl going to orgcom meetings? are we intending to put up a booth there?
looking at the track record of nylxs, i can see freedom-it becoming a reality.
sorry for asking too many questions, i guess i just woke up..
