A natural for OpenOffice.org, I think! -- if anyone is available to
speak on the topic.
I wish I could. Normally, I can't make it then but let's see. So far,
my calendar looks open then.
OOo could also probably have a (free) booth, if we had people to
work at it. I am unable to attend next year's SCALE.
I'm always of two minds when it comes to booths-- a lot of work and
doubtful payoff. As well, we really don't have many in the area, at
I've attended one SCALE, in 2006, and thought it was good venue for
reaching users as well as developers.
So I've heard from others.
The OpenDocument booth had copies of the OOoAuthors books on OOo,
among other items, and they were quite popular. ALthough SCALE is a
Linux conference, many people asked questions related to
encouraging Windows users to switch to OOo.
Thanks for the info.
My default reaction at this point (as opposed to my kneejerk one) is
to suggest we create a wiki of events that all the community--not
just the anglophone one--finds interesting. We can divide these by
region/country, and call it, "..../events.html . We can then link
this to Marketing wiki and Marketing homepage.

Scale is an interesting and worthwhile event, from what I have
heard from those here who have attended and from those in other
projects who have gone. AFAIK, there are very few OOo community
members in SoCal, however. I doubt if we would have funds for
subsidizing anyone to go to it, but it may be worthwhile to see if
there is enough interest in the new and expanded community.
