Maemo Meeting: Tuesday, 9 November, 18:00 UTC


Hi everyone,

More apologies for delays in communication, but I've been going through
a tenure review process for the last couple of weeks and I've been
swamped with wall-to-wall work. That's a good thing for me, even though
maemo.org is forced to suffer through long bouts of silence.

To break the silence, I thought it would be a good time to schedule a
meeting. Not just a Maemo Community Council meeting, but one that
incorporates the m.o staff as well.

The time:

http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?year=2010&month=11&day=9&hour=18&min=0&sec=0

The place[1]:

irc://chat.freenode.net/maemo-meeting

1. There is still one important m.o issue that is pending[2], and I'm
going to have to cede to Andrew to head it up if he can make the
meeting, as he knows more about the background story, how the decisions
were made, and (hopefully) what should happen next. If any of the m.o
staff would like to take a few minutes to answer some of those questions
on this list (pre-meeting), please do so. I don't think there was any
response to this issue.

2. MeeGo Conference is coming up quickly. It's organizing itself rather
sufficiently, but there is another side of the conference that we

Hi,

That clashes with a standing engagement I have, and one I don't want to
cancel next week for a number of reasons.

I'll happily answer any questions that anyone has, and I can certainly
pitch in on the subjects below later :)

Cheers,
Dave.

Yes, please send all questions/comments/answers (especially concerning
Andrew's email from September) to the list.

Thanks!

Please take a look at this planned talk[0] by me and timeless. We are
thinking along these lines and I know I'm personally interested in
more feedback from the Maemo community than what I was able to extract
so far[1].  I think there's more place for discussion both online and
offline.

(3) is describing exactly my thoughts when I first submitted the
proposal. One of my intentions is to come up with a written manifesto,
if you will, and try and communicate it to my favorite handset
producer for sake of better satisfaction out of the end product, and
the process in between.

If you have any input that you'd like to share and that we could use
at the talk- that'd be great.

That is a good point. I believe the conference will make a splash in the Maemo relevant channels, but making
sure is important. A lot of prominent Maemo community members do blog, twitter and show up elsewhere, but
making sure that the Maemo specific channels, talk, news and so forth, are updated is important too.

And naturally the opposite. There are a lot of long time contributors having sessions at the conference,
and I am sure that their heritage from Maemo can be heard in the talks. Even as MeeGo is a brand new start, it
has learned and continues to listen to its origins.

Maker's Contest: Lollipop bridge

Hi all,

So - with a week to go, here are the details of the Maker's Contest I'll
be running on Saturday after the Linux dev tools tutorial:

Teams will be made up of 3 - 5 people, depending on how many people are
taking part. We're limited (by equipment) to 10 teams.

Each team will get 100 lollipop sticks and a glue gun with one glue
stick (US plug, please if you have a US to UK adaptor bring it along
with you on Saturday). No other materials may be used for the bridge.

Teams will have 1 hour to make a bridge which should span a 40cm gap.

I don't have any prizes right now, but there will be awards (at least
I'll get someone to buy the winning teams a beer) for the prettiest
bridge, and for the bridge which can hold the greatest weight.

Obviously we'll judge the pretty bridge contest first ;)

Bridge resistance testing equipment still needs to be sourced! Ideally I
would like a bucket, some rope & a strong tube (wavin or metal), which
we can hang off the middle of the bridge, and about 100kg of weights we
can use to break the things. Anyone in Dublin got what we need &
prepared to help out?

There are some excellent bridge building resources out there, and I'm
sure that there's more than one civil engineer among us who knows about
physical load balancing & materials who will be up to the challenge :)

There will be a first price for each category. I can promise that much. :-)

Having a meeting is definitely a good idea. Unfortunately this time
won't work for me, as I'm speaking on that day in the OpenMind
conference.

Last minute change: Maemo Meeting: Thursday, 11 November, 18:00 UTC


Hi,

A lot of important people won't be able to make the meeting tomorrow, so
I'm going to bump it to Thursday, 11 November, at 1800 UTC. Regardless
whether or not people can make the new date, it will proceed. The
community should have a chance to have a word (if needed) and whomever
is present can voice any concerns or provide ideas and feedback for
MeeGo Conference.

The one thing I would like is the the m.o staff take a few minutes to
address Andrew's email via this list before 1800 UTC on Thursday --
especially if you can't make it.

http://lists.maemo.org/pipermail/maemo-community/2010-September/004519.html

This will be helpful in preparing us to move forward in the next year.

Secondly, if anyone have any Maemo/MeeGo concerns to address during our
meeting and can't make it, please send them to this list as well.

Thank you. I hope to see you at the meeting.

Tim

Location of the Early bird event

Hi,

ist the exact location of the early bird event in Dublin on Saturday and Sunday still  available? If yes, please let me know :)

At the moment the wiki entry [1] says:

"About the location that will host us we still have no idea. Probably it will be possible to use the same hotel used for the MeeGo Conference, but this must be confirmed yet."

Best regards Uwe
