1 From: "Sam Moffatt" <firstname.lastname@example.org> 2 To: "Russell Stuart" <email@example.com> 3 Date: Wed, 3 Sep 2008 15:54:45 +1000 4 Subject: Re: Humbug's bid for 2010 5 6 Hi Russell, 7 8 More than interested in getting LCA back into the better part of the 9 world. I've expanded it a bit, attached is a PDF and original so if 10 you feel like culling stuff you can. This year we ran a JoomlaDay in 11 Melbourne on the Saturday of LCA which attracted 135 people to the 12 University of Melbourne. I've applied to do some tutorials and a 13 Joomla! miniconf/JoomlaDay at LCA2009, not sure if I'll get them or 14 not but I'll defnitely be there so we can catch up with things there. 15 I'm sure we could also work on a JoomlaDay for LCA2010 and work out 16 how to best handle that in the long run. 17 18 Someone you might be able to contact who might be interested in giving 19 some support is Steve Tempest <Steve.Tempest@gts.apn.xxxx>. APN do 20 some Linux stuff though I'm not entirely certain to which extent 21 they've got things running. You'd have to check with them to see how 22 it goes. 23 24 You may also want to grab Scott Barnett (firstname.lastname@example.org) if 25 you haven't already, he's written Stronghold 26 (http://www.strongholdcms.org/) and runs a company called Driea 27 (http://www.driea.com/) and was a sponsor for LCA08 as well. I don't 28 have a better email floating about at the moment but that should get 29 you there. He was working at Townsville Regional Council so you might 30 be able to track him down there. He may not respond (think he's a part 31 of OSIA) but you never know your luck. 32 33 Cheers, 34 35 Sam 36 37 38 On Wed, Sep 3, 2008 at 1:42 PM, Russell Stuart <email@example.com> wrote: 39 > Sam, 40 > 41 > I am organising Humbug's bid to hold the Linux Conference Australia for 42 > 2010 in Brisbane.
