Re: [spox] Conference schedule V0.8

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,

 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

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