<fabian_a> There is a project called Fedora EventBox http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/EventBox <fabian_a> i think for small events this would be very useful....for big events like Linuxtag not <fabian_a> for events which are covered by one or two person <fabian_a> the problem will be the money for this....and the delivery to the locations <bogomil> +1 <Pingoomax> i'm quite agree with this <Pingoomax> in small events, there are few ambassadors <Pingoomax> they can't provides all stuff by their own <Pingoomax> the real problem is delay <Pingoomax> if a set is readdy, it easier to ship it quickly <FrancescoUgolini> Yes, it's a usefull tool. Personally i think if we coordinate this project something good can be done <FrancescoUgolini> We can create a timetable, where people ask for material <FrancescoUgolini> and then you can easly manage this <Pingoomax> i think we have to go step by step <Pingoomax> providing computer is a bit hard <Pingoomax> at first we can make a small event box <Pingoomax> with flyers, banners, (t-shirt) goodies, and of course dvds <Pingoomax> we all have pcs that we can bring to events <Pingoomax> it's better to have a small set that we can send quicly to ambassadors <Pingoomax> than a really big an great one which is really hard to send <bogomil> +1 <kanarip> +1 Pingoomax <kital> i think the only thing what we should provide is a "guide" how to build a booth (where he can put things with good effects) <Pingoomax> +1 <kital> every event should have a table <kital> a wall <kital> a bit clue band <kital> and our artwork has a short lifecycle so Banners must produce every time new <kital> therefore we are ambassadors to organize by our own and react flexible on the given situation <FrancescoUgolini> +1 <FrancescoUgolini> KageSenshi <KageSenshi> +1 <KageSenshi> adding a lil bit to kital suggestion ... <KageSenshi> in each countries theres a few ambassadors .. <KageSenshi> some stuff can be provided by the ambassadors themselves <KageSenshi> i'm suggesting every country have their own eventbox whch they make themselves to use among them .. with the international eventbox as a compliment to it <FrancescoUgolini> KageSenshi, what you say is correct, the problem is that a country event box is usefull only for country with more than 5 ambassadors <fabian_a> standard-banners can reused.... <fabian_a> i think after linuxtag there will be a lot of stuff in germany <fabian_a> i think that this stuff can reused at events in other european countries <FrancescoUgolini> +1 <KageSenshi> +1 <kital> +1 <kanarip> has anyone ever considered contacting a world-wide express delivery company with all this sending back and forth of materials, and get some account with a nice discount (sponsoring?) or something? <FrancescoUgolini> kanarip, i think we have to do this :) <KageSenshi> +1 <kital> i think the eventbox "guide" could contain expiriences like "to stick the dvd on a desk so the people must ask" or "to produce templates for flyers" you can put on the desk <kital> eof <kanarip> FrancescoUgolini, include the free media program as well, maybe there's other SIGs / Projects that would need such an account / send a lot of stuff <FrancescoUgolini> yes, i think guide is the most usefull thing, becaumse many time people don't know how to use their material <FrancescoUgolini> kanarip, yes, we will do this.
