MozPit: Meeting Room and Technical Presentation Schedule

Not booked yet.


  1. cd should include 'Please copy and give to all your friends' on the label.
  2. If it's a LiveCD then update checks must be disabled to avoid messages.
  3. Booth duty sign up sheet. Including a "lunch grabber" role perhaps.
  4. Keep the MozPit! But, I'm torn as to whether it should be bigger or not. Keeping it smallish would help keep it interactive I think.
  5. Book a block of hotel rooms early. I don't think we get dinged if we cancel a day before.
  6. Prepare and maintain an succinct electronic LA/CSUN info kit for newcomers. Maps, bus/trolley, reasonable places to eat, facts to use at the booth etc.
  7. MozPit signup sheet with topics/tasks. e.g. "Hack on Jambu"
