Hello open spaces crew,

Ewa needs decisions by March 15 for open spaces board, slides for the slide roll before each talk, and program/schedule suggestions.

So Anna, Haley, Katia: I'd love your input on the below ASAP since we only have a couple days.

Ernest said he can make our open spaces board photo page at us.pycon.org/os and he might be able to do it at pycon.us/os. We need to decide on one of those URLs.

Here are my suggestions:

1. The open spaces board should include some large text noting that the board can be viewed on your phone also. I'm proposing:

> Want to see the board on-the-go? You can see the open spaces board on your phone! See this board at http://us.pycon.org/os

2. The slide roll before each talk should include a slide about seeing the open spaces from your phone:

> Did you know you can take a look at the open spaces board from your phone or laptop this year?
> Visit http://us.pycon.org/os to see what the board looks like now.
> Find the open spaces board near the reg table to host your own open space.
>
> By the way, you should really try attending or planning an open space if you've never been!

3. Printed program:

Open space rooms and time blocks listed in the schedule and printed program with a big overlay on top of the room/time grid that says:

> Open spaces board near registration
> Or visit http://us.pycon.org/os to see the board

I realize this might be a hard sell space-wise in the program. Ewa & Jackie, I'd love to hear your thoughts on whether this is possible. I can't remember what we did in the program the last couple years.

Anywhere I'm missing putting the URL?
Anything above that you think should change (wording, messaging, otherwise)?
Anything else we're missing that we'll wish we hadn't overlooked in a week?
