Re: [spox] Conference schedule V0.8

No flame war! I've successfully done it with free software too, at the free software meeting in India (but I've forgotten the name of the software!) It needs setting up in advance, and testing, to make sure it works when it's live. -- Chrs, S

Not to start some sort of flame war, but it would be great if the
tele-link could be established with Free Software, - if Oeknonux can't,
then who can? :)

Dear Michel,

I have to reiterate that the only way I can attend is via skype or
ichat. I will be unable to fly to Europe live. Please let me know
whether you can arrange a skype teleconference for my presentation (I
have done that many times in the past 2 years).

Otherwise, I will have to ask with regret that you remove my name from
the programme.

Best wishes,

I now created a new schedule which is far closer to the final version

There are two major changes:

* Meaningful tracks

I introduced meaningful tracks bundling several events under a
single topic. I created those tracks according to the topics I
introduced in the announcement:

* Beyond Free Software
* Aspects of Free Software
* Social movements
* Theories on peer production
* Future of peer production
* Special

I used the tracks to avoid scheduling two events from the same track
at the same time.

Apart from that though the previous schedule was *very* preliminary
I tried to not move people around compared to the previous schedule.

* Starting at Friday 14:00

Yuwei (the person who does the local organization - thank you
Yuwei!) told me that it would be better to finish on Friday at
17:00. This would mean that we need to start three hours earlier.

I know this is a major nuisance as far as your planned arrival is
concerned. I tried to take this into account by moving tolerant
people in the very early slots (like me ;-) ).

You can find the result of these considerations at

*Please* check this schedule until

       Sunday, March 1st

If you are a speaker then please make sure you are in Manchester at
the time your talk is scheduled. If you are not available please
contact me immediately with information about your availability.

If you are on [pox] and you have ideas on improving the schedule feel
free to make suggestions (on [pox]).

After this deadline I'd like to create the final version 1.0 of the
