While it says best and brightest I'm going anyway. :-)

Planning to be there for coreboot and plan 9. I've registered for
those topics or whatever it is you do. Anyway I have tried to put
those names on the board.

Hope some of you can make it.

Greetings everyone!

I hope that everyone is doing well and doing good things.  I wanted to
just touch base with everyone and let you know about some exciting
things that I'm working on and would like everyone to be apart of.

The basic idea behind FOSS Dev Camp is to gather developers of free &
open source software together to collaborate, share ideas, and generally
improve FLOSS software across the board.  This collaborate could be
between developers of desktop environments, various distributions or
even distribution package maintainers working with upstream developers.
 The event also gives a unique opportunity for users, allowing them to
present bugs and features requests to developers in a in-person setting.

The nature of this event is such that it can and should occur multiple
times a year and multiple locations.  Software development moves very
quickly, especially free & open source software development.  My
ultimate vision is that a FDC instance will occur before each and every
FOSS related event around the world.

To kick things off, the folks at both Open Source World (Don Marti -
Open Source World) and Linux Con (Angela Brown and Amanda McPherson -
Linux Foundation) have generously offered to host FOSS Dev Camp at their
 upcoming shows, Open Source World and Linux Con respectively.  I have
also been talking with Michael Tougeron who is organizing OS Camp being
held at OSCON 2009 about incorporating some FDC ideas into OS Camp.  If
anyone is planning on attending any of these events, I would encourage
you to also attend both FOSS Dev Camp & OS Camp.

The FDC web site[1] is online with information about the upcoming events
as well as the wiki[2] for attendees to add what content they are
interested in seeing and doing at the events.

Please pass this information along to anyone who you think might be
interested!  Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
