20:32:00 <cmpahar> some details regarding your event :)
20:32:34 <cmpahar> biertie, great!
20:32:36 <biertie> well, the Kosovo one is very confusing, and I hear weird things about my sponsorship to get there
20:32:55 <biertie> the conference told me they are going to sponsor me, because I'm also a speaker there
20:32:57 <cmpahar> biertie, is there a wiki page?
20:33:01 <biertie> yes
20:33:04 <biertie> let me google that for you
20:33:21 <biertie> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Sfk_2010

20:33:33 <cmpahar> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Sfk_2010
20:33:49 <biertie> so, we will have a boot there, and I requested some swag, that I would pick up during fudcon emea
20:34:19 <biertie> but if it isn't happening after all (I mean, this is in 2 weeks, and I have the impression that they all have died over there) I will use the swag for the release event I'm having later
20:34:32 <biertie> anyway, we'll have a booth there too :)
20:34:35 <cmpahar> ahahaha
20:34:50 <cmpahar> excellent!!!

20:37:46 <cmpahar> will you tell us a few thing about the two events
20:37:49 <cmpahar> here in Greece?
20:38:08 <constanton> yes...I will start with Software Freedom Day
20:38:36 <constanton> We will have presence in Athens and in Thessaloniki (yes, you cmpahar)
20:38:49 <constanton> #link https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraEvents/SoftwareFreedomDay2010Athens
20:38:55 * cmpahar not actually me
20:39:19 <cmpahar> but other two ambassadors :)
20:39:26 <constanton> sorry I forgot many people like cmpahar and pierros will be at FudCon
20:39:37 <constanton> but those who will remain
20:39:42 <constanton> will do their best
20:39:46 <constanton> like me :)
20:39:54 <cmpahar> +1
20:39:59 <constanton> so, next event is Athens Digital Week 2010
20:40:17 <constanton> like every year since 2008, we will have presence in Athens Digital Week organised from the municipality of Athens
20:40:29 <constanton> a big event not only for software but for other fields like music/robotics/etc. And that means that a lot of people will attend it.
20:41:08 <constanton> It's a great opportunity to make the name of Fedora more famous in Greece :)
20:41:20 <constanton> #link http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/AthensDigitalWeek2010
20:41:34 <constanton> here is the link and the attendants as you can see are many
20:41:52 <constanton> we have contacted the organisers of course and asked for materials
20:42:26 <constanton> so
20:42:34 <constanton> presentations will include
20:42:41 <constanton> a talk on Security spin
20:43:06 <constanton> from Anastasis, ( I will introduce this talk, saying a few words on spins and remixes)
20:43:24 <constanton> and of course we will have a talk on F14
20:43:40 <constanton> and that's all I have to say I think... cmpahar what do you say?
20:44:07 <cmpahar> i will also give a talk about fedora in education
20:44:16 <cmpahar> how can apply in Greek education
20:44:35 <cmpahar> and pierros will probably give a talk about Fedora 14
20:44:38 <cmpahar> thats all
20:45:03 <cmpahar> thank you constanton
