PyCon 2005 is just around the corner.  PyCon is a great place to meet
and collaborate with your colleagues.  A great way to collaborate at
PyCon is through "Open space".

Open space is a part of PyCon designed to provide opportunities for
collaboration.  There are two kinds of open space at Pycon, quiet
and noisy.  There will be a quiet room provided throughout the
conference for people to access the network and to quietly hack with
others (e.g. pair program).

There will also be a noisy room for people to have discussions or
give informal presentations.  The noisy room will host up to two
presentations or discussions at a time.  We'll provide the
opportunity to sign up for 30-minute time slots.  We'll allow sign
up for half of the time slots before the conference.  There will
be a posted schedule with spaces to sign up for the remainder of
the time slots during the conference.

To sign up ahead of time, send me (jim at zope.com) email with:

- Your desired time slot,

- A title for your session, and optionally

- A very short description.

I will get back to you with a confirmation.

I will also post sign up sheets at the conference. These will be on
easels by the registration desk.  Sheets to sign up for sessions on
Wednesday will be posted on Monday through Wednesday.  Sheets to sign
up for sessions on Thursday will be posted on Wednesday and Thursday.
Sheets to sign up for sessions on Friday will be posted on Thursday
and Friday.

If you have a question about open space, feel free to drop me a line
at jim at zope.com.
