Subject: [linux-elitists] Potential conference for 2015?
User-Agent: Mutt/1.5.23 (2014-03-12)
A huge opportunity in the open-source mindshare space
has opened up for 2015. An important challenge for
Linux desktop user experience and for key crypto
infrastructure is outlined in the two groundbreaking

Clearly, there is a need for an event/media
opportunity to bring together the core developers for
these critical software components in order to enable
next-generation interoperability for the future.
If we start now, we might be able to get actor David
Herman to give the opening keynote.
Distributions have a role in this event as well.
Perhaps a GNOME/GnuPG Interoperability Summit could
be part of Linux Plumber's Conference, or LinuxCon?
UX and crypto are both hot, so it should be pretty
doable to round up travel sponsors for the relevant
experts. (I can volunteer to do some sponsor calling
and event wrangling, and draft a press release about
whatever the resolution is and why it means Open
Source Wins So Hard Everyone Else Can Go Home Now.)
Do not Cc: anyone else on mail sent to this list. The list server is set for maximum one recipient.
