[21:37] <toddc> thanks it will help
[21:38] <slofgren> so is ableconf offical?
[21:38] <toddc> now I can get back at all those that kicked me out of here before
[21:38] <toddc> yes it is in it's third year
[21:38] <FernHans> slofgren: yes, has been for months :)
[21:38] <toddc> http://www.ableconf.com/
[21:39] <FernHans> toddc: the big thing is ABLEconf :)
[21:39] <FernHans> as you said, it's the first Saturday in April at UAT
[21:39] * slofgren feels bad for not being envolved
[21:39] <FernHans> we've gotten confirmation from all but two presenters and will hopefully have the schedule up in a couple of days
[21:39] <toddc> due to my poor planning it is the same day as the Tucson Installfest
[21:40] <slofgren> cancel it
[21:40] <scott_ev> damnn, that's like choosing between Barak Hosein Obama and John the cripple McCain
[21:41] <slofgren> o.O
[21:41] * scott_ev is always politically correct
[21:41] <scott_ev> haha
[21:41] <FernHans> we have come cool talks this year: Local-Motors, Dell, accessiblity, several business talks, graphics, translation software, geneology, cloud computing, wikipedia, hackerspaces
[21:41] <slofgren> always as in never
[21:41] <slofgren> lol
[21:41] <scott_ev> agreed
[21:41] <toddc> looks like we are getting a lot of RSVP to the Tucson installfest and a lot of linux users are emailing me about it
[21:41] <sloggerkhan> hmm what day ableconf vs tucson installfest?
[21:42] <toddc> april 2
[21:42] <scott_ev> FernHans: who's going to be the biggest players in cloud computing in the long run? What do you think of Silicon Graphics?
[21:42] <FernHans> so ABLEconf is looking good
[21:42] <FernHans> we also probably have a keynote this year :). on renewable energy and Free Software
[21:42] <scott_ev> nice
[21:43] <slofgren> say cloud one more time...
[21:43] <FernHans> scott_ev: BTW, does your startup want a table?
[21:43] <scott_ev> it is quite the buzz word this year
[21:44] <FernHans> slofgren: we don't get to see them very often down here :)
[21:44] <toddc> some send me a live video feed from ableconf?
[21:44] <scott_ev> FernHans: We dissolved that entity, sorry
[21:44] <eeeThugal> :(
[21:45] <FernHans> scott_ev: ah
[21:45] <FernHans> toddc: we might have that
[21:45] <scott_ev> in other words my partner went MIA after I quit shelling out the $
[21:45] <toddc> it would be used
[21:45] <FernHans> toddc: ok, I'll hold you to that :)
[21:46] <toddc> I will show in Tucson if availible
[21:46] <scott_ev> brb
[21:48] <toddc> that is about all I have for the meeting to night but I will be here a while if anyone has questions or comments

[21:37] <slofgren>      go nuts
[21:37] <slofgren>      REALLY?
[21:37] <toddc> thanks it will help
[21:38] <slofgren>      so is ableconf offical?
[21:38] <toddc> now I can get back at all those that kicked me out of here before
[21:38] <toddc> yes it is in it's third year
[21:38] <FernHans>      slofgren: yes, has been for months :)
[21:38] <toddc> http://www.ableconf.com/
[21:39] <FernHans>      toddc: the big thing is ABLEconf :)
[21:39] <FernHans>      as you said, it's the first Saturday in April at UAT
[21:39] * slofgren      feels bad for not being envolved
[21:39] <FernHans>      we've gotten confirmation from all but two presenters and will hopefully have the schedule up in a couple of days
[21:39] <toddc> due to my poor planning it is the same day as the Tucson Installfest
[21:40] <slofgren>      cancel it
[21:40] <scott_ev>      damnn, that's like choosing between Barak Hosein Obama and John the cripple McCain
[21:41] <slofgren>      o.O
[21:41] * scott_ev      is always politically correct
[21:41] <scott_ev>      haha
[21:41] <FernHans>      we have come cool talks this year: Local-Motors, Dell, accessiblity, several business talks, graphics, translation software, geneology, cloud computing, wikipedia, hackerspaces
[21:41] <slofgren>      always as in never
[21:41] <slofgren>      lol
[21:41] <scott_ev>      agreed
[21:41] <toddc> looks like we are getting a lot of RSVP to the Tucson installfest and a lot of linux users are emailing me about it
[21:41] <sloggerkhan>   hmm what day ableconf vs tucson installfest?
[21:42] <toddc> april 2
[21:42] <scott_ev>      FernHans: who's going to be the biggest players in cloud computing in the long run? What do you think of Silicon Graphics?
[21:42] <FernHans>      so ABLEconf is looking good
[21:42] <FernHans>      we also probably have a keynote this year :). on renewable energy and Free Software
[21:42] <scott_ev>      nice
[21:43] <slofgren>      say cloud one more time...
[21:43] <FernHans>      scott_ev: BTW, does your startup want a table?
[21:43] <scott_ev>      it is quite the buzz word this year
[21:44] <FernHans>      slofgren: we don't get to see them very often down here :)
[21:44] <toddc> some send me a live video feed from ableconf?
[21:44] <scott_ev>      FernHans: We dissolved that entity, sorry
[21:44] <eeeThugal>     :(
[21:45] <FernHans>      scott_ev: ah
[21:45] <FernHans>      toddc: we might have that
[21:45] <scott_ev>      in other words my partner went MIA after I quit shelling out the $
[21:45] <toddc> it would be used
[21:45] <FernHans>      toddc: ok, I'll hold you to that :)
[21:46] <toddc> I will show in Tucson if availible
[21:46] <scott_ev>      brb
[21:48] <toddc> that is about all I have for the meeting to night but I will be here a while if anyone has questions or comments
[21:48] <slofgren>      well I plan to be there unless the baby comes a month early
