    Millersville University Event: OpenOptions: Remix Computing with Open Source Software

    In order to reach the most number of people possible for this event coordination, I'm cross-posting part the message from Bryan Behrenshausen on the mailing list:

    Hi everyone,

    I'm writing with one more update on the progress of the F/OSS event
    I've been planning at Millersville University. I finally have some
    specific, concrete details to share with you, and I'm very excited
    about them.

    Since I "pitched" my idea for this event to library faculty and staff,
    it has snowballed in many positive and exciting ways. What began (in
    my mind) as a small assembly/demonstration of a few open source
    software solutions has blossomed into a campus-wide roundtable
    speaking event as various parties from around the university have
    expressed an interest in participating. Here are the current details
    of the event:

    On Thursday evening (most likely between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.), February
    18, 2010, the university library will be hosting an open source themed
    event -- "Open Options: Remix Computing with Open Source Software" --
    that corresponds with the university's current theme, "Remix the
    Future, Remake our World." The purpose of the event is to introduce
    students and faculty to both the concept/philosophy of open source in
    general, and to expose them to various open source software
    applications and platforms that may enhance their lives around the
    university. The event will feature a roundtable discussion by faculty
    in numerous academic disciplines (education, political science,
    library science, computer science) and departments (education
    technologies, information technology). As an instructor in the
    Department of Communication and Theatre, I will be moderating this
    discussion, for which participants will be bringing brief, prepared
    remarks, then commenting on a few questions I'll have given them
    beforehand.

    At the team meeting in #ubuntu-us-pa on irc.freenode.net this week we were able to chat with one of the organizers of this event and fleshed out a wiki page with event details, ideas and a place to sign up to volunteer to help out:

    This will be our first event in the Lancaster area! If you're in the area it would be really great if you could come out and help out

    I won't be available for this event (I'm moving out of the area) - can we get some volunteers to help out, and hopefully someone to step up as a "lead" to coordinate things? Come on Lancaster-area people, make us proud!

    Thanks for all your help promoting this event. We're still in need of a few volunteers to demonstrate software at the February 18 event. Please contact me immediately (using the address provided above) if you're interested!
