There's a decent possibility of having a stand very cheap (proper island stand,
partially sponsored, in the main conference area) which we would share with
Blender and some other projects (Ton from Blender's co-ordinating). I would
love to have the GIMP represented at a top flight conference like this, and
think it's worth the money - the GIMP's part of the pie would be between $1K
and $2K, depending on the levels of sponsorship, whether we bed in with the
GNOME guys, etc.
I think this is the kind of thing we should be doing more, and we definitely
have some budget to spend on it. What say ye?
And if we do join up, who would like to represent us, do some demos, etc?
Someone in the Boston area would be best, but we can probably afford to
contribute to the costs of the most appropriate people if there aren't good
candidates in the area. Siggraph is in Boston from August 1st to August 3rd.
