Who's Who at FreedomHEC


(please add yourself--the wiki password is: freedom)


Question: I'm staying near the LA Convention Center for WinHEC, and would like to catch the FreedomHEC shuttle. How do I sign up?

Answer: Put "need shuttle" next to your name and we'll send you the shuttle details.


Question: Is there any provision for virtual attendance (live streaming, IRC feedback etc)? 'fraid I can't justify the trip from NZ! -- Eliot


Answer: We are planning to shoot video, but we don't have a live remote participation system yet. If anyone who will be attending in person would be willing to do this, please create an "audio streaming" or "IRC" section on the home page and mail me -- dmarti@zgp.org -- to discuss logistics -- Don
