ArsTechnica has volunteered to take an entire room and run tech programming in it 24 hours a day all weekend! This will be in addition to the fantastic software and hardware programming which PenguiCon always runs. A schedule of Tech events for PenguiCon 4.0 in 2006 will be posted here no later than Sunday, March 19, 2006.
Job Description <br>–PenguiCon 5.0 in 2007 needs a Head of TechProgramming. <br>-accepts or declines offers to do TechPresentation's at PenguiCon, and solicits more of them from the OpenSource and hardware hacking community if necessary. <br>-asks people to be on tech-related PanelDiscussion's and gives the names of them and all TechPresenters to PreRegistration so they get their discount rate. <br>-works with the HeadOfProgramming to fit the events into the schedule. <br>-before the convention tells tech-related ProgramParticipants what day, time and room they are expected to show up for their scheduled events. <br>-collects short descriptive ProgramBook blurbs from the tech-related ProgramParticipants, or writes them.
This side of the convention is full of such enthusiasm, it practically puts itself together. We need somebody familiar enough about the subjects to know what would be more interesting to techies, and to keep it from being too unbalanced toward one subject.
