Now I'd like to raise a few points for discussion: I think, we'll probably need a few sponsors, at least for things like leaflets etc. and if we advertise in newspapers and so on. I think there are two types of potential sponsors/donors: 1. Government(-related) organs. This includes Department of Education of Canton Zurich, "Präsidialdepartement" Stadt Zürich, Eidg. Staatssekretariat für Bildung und Forschung, ETHZ, UNIZH (and students associations) and others 2. companies, that would like to have a possibility to advertise. From ZKB to IBM everything possible. (IBM could e.g. provide IT material) Now the question is: Is it ok for us to ask companies as in 2. as sponsors? If you compare to Linux Day (linuxtag.org), they have sponsors as HP, Intel and IBM and, well, quod licet Iovi etiam licet bovi... Anyway, if we want to have any of these sponsors, we'd need to get in touch with them asap, because internal decision-making can be ***slow*** 2nd point: Has anybody now already invited Prof. Meyer? 3rd point: If we start inviting people, contacting organisations and media, it might be the time, to get [EMAIL PROTECTED] working, some things are not really mailinglist-compatible. So Delphine proposed once, that we could set up a mail adress like [EMAIL PROTECTED] and make a permanent redirect from [EMAIL PROTECTED] to this adress. Thierry, would this be a great thing to enable that? Delphine, same question to you.
