Excellent opportunity for Open Source/Linux Evangelism. M$ will be there, will we?

On October 18th, 7:30am-7 pm The Tech 2000 Expo will take place at Pease 
Tradeport in Portsmouth, NH.  This is a different event from the one Dan 
York e-mailed us about.
This is hosted by the Chamber of Commerce and The E-Coast Technology 
Roundtable.  85 high tech companies are participating with booths and 
Keane, Genuity, Bowstreet Software and Newmarket Software are Sponsoring. 
Booth participation is limited to high tech companies only. Participation 
by companies who sell insurance/real estate/bagels to high tech companies 
have been excluded.  Publicity for the event includes a 2 inch color banner 
across the front page of the Boston Globe Technology Section and coverage 
in New Hampshire Business Week and Mass High Tech.  Here is the opportunity 
for us:  The committee will be reviewing speaker topics next week.  Do we 
have anyone that would be interested in speaking on open source or Linux at 
one of 15 workshops  that will be held throughout the day?.  The workshops 
are 45-55 minutes long and will be attended by up to 200 people.  Microsoft 
has already signed on however I have not seen the abstract of what they are 
speaking on.  I know that it can't be a product advertisement so it isn't 
"Why you should buy Windows 2000".  I'm sure that it is exactly what it 
will be but they will have their marketing people candy coat it.  Do we 
have anyone who would like to take on this challenge?  I need the abstracts 
to me by Friday the 25th @ 5:00.
