Yeah - I think there were last minute problems with the volunteer list in general last year - they had also given me 50 tickets to give away which further complicated matters (but in a good way!)

I suspect that if you reach out to the right folks (feel free to hit up sherry huss, she...@oreilly.com) and let them know you have volunteers and you'd like them to get passes then you should be in good shape. I'm assured they process ought to be better this year...


Thanks!

I emailed "them" about a week or two ago about a related topic but haven't heard back. I will ping them again about this. Just as a note, last year the "names at the front desk" thing didn't work out too well - but no matter - we'll figure something out.

And remember everyone, we're less than 2 weeks away - so if have any suggestions for what to do at MF - speak now!

Per last year, will you have a list of the volunteers names given to the front desk people so they can get in for free with a lanyard?

This should be a pretty standard process. The organizers just need to know who is coming and who to give the lanyards to at the 'volunteer registration' booth way at the front of the event.

I'm willing to put together:

* 100 or so wiki pencils
* up to 500 wiki pins
* about 500 mini wiki stickers
* the wiki vests for your use

Not much more stock than that right now - we will do a big re-order with our new budget.

that means materials should be handed out in person rather than scattered out as a grab-all. You'd run out fast :(

I'm signed up for Saturday morning to help kick it off!

I'd love to prep some activity visualizations to run in the background but I'll be out of town for the event so will need a volunteer proxy to make sure there's hardware to run em on. :)

Hi all,

We need to start seriously planning for Maker Faire, which is four short weeks away. Please add your thoughts on cool things to bring to this page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Meetup/San_Francisco/Maker_Faire

I also added a section for volunteers -- if you want to help staff the booth, please add your name!
