  • Currently light on confirmed tech community & European participants.
  • Public confirming Michelle Thorne as program co-chair with Mark.
  • Discussed localization: reac out to Mozilla localization community in Spain to request regular updates in Spanish and Catalan on 5-10 key Festical web pages.  Begin messaging for on-site language issues: English event, strong effort to translate plenary sessions into Spanish and Catalan, small groups work from a basic set of sensible guidelines.  Saturday event mostly in Catalan for local young people.
