Thanks Jennifer and hi Sage! I hope you are doing
well, and everyone
else too :). I had wanted to send a note last week but I was just
getting back from vacation, it unfortunately took me a little longer to
get caught up than anticipated so apologies on my delay.
I had reviewed the schedule with Jennifer and I do have a few
questions/items that I wanted to run by you all. Those are below: Sage,
will you be doing any kind of introductory keynote like you did last
year for for 15-20 mins (or, it could be shorter due to other keynotes)
We were thinking:
- intro keynote from me. it can be short or long, depending on space
- panel with the components leads, like we did last time. day 2
- if there's time, a "what's coming in pacific" slot (short, 15m?)
We already have a few confirmed sponsor keynotes:
Softiron (15 minutes),
XSKY (8 minutes) and Western Digital (8 minutes) - do know which days
you want them placed on? I believe Jennifer mentioned you are also
thinking that Intel and Suse will also come in as sponsors. Do you know
when you would want them to speak? If we can at least know when you want
them to speak, we can hold those on the schedule.
Red Hat will speak. I'm assuming Suse and Intel will also want slots
too... I sent an email a bit ago to confirm. I have no real preference
for which days anyone goes...
Let's wait to hear back from them and then see how the schedule fits
> I also had originally had that slot for a sponsor session on the schedule but I now
realize, after further reviewing the perspective, that sponsors only get keynotes or a
meal session - but I believe at this time Jennifer had put that missing session into the
schedule. Jennifer, if not, please go ahead and do so as we do not need to hold that slot.

to hearing back from you.
