If you read here, you probably know that we’ve adopted a transparent proposals model, meaning you can see all the sessions that have been proposed for Open Source Bridge.
By the way, the deadline to submit a proposal is coming soon, April 10, and this time, we mean it.
Did you know that each proposal also has its own comments section?
So, as the deadline approaches, if you’re attending (thanks) or on the fence, have a look at what’s been proposed and let us know what you’d like to see presented in June (specifically, June 17-19). Keep in mind, this isn’t voting, but if we have a couple sessions that we can’t decide between, a comment or two may help sway our decision.
After all, if you don’t know what you want, we’ll just pick what we want.
The comments are between you and us, so feel free to tell us how awesome your favorite presenters are without blushing.
Head over to the proposals and have a look. There are more than 150 in there, broken into five tracks: cooking, chemistry, culture, hacks and business. Browse through and comment where you find something interesting.
Why stop there? If you’re really passionate, why not blog about it and get a comment-storm going? We’ll be reviewing proposals after the submission deadline, so you’ll have time to get organized.
Of course, if you find that the session you really want to see isn’t in there yet, never fear. You still have until April 10 to propose it yourself or find the right person to present it and convince her/him to submit it.
What do you think of the open proposal model? It’s not that common for a conference to open its proposal submissions for anyone to see, and we think this is an integral part of having a great conference.
So, this is your chance to let us know what you want to see.
What are you waiting for, an invitation? No problem.
You are cordially invited to review our proposal submissions and comment on those you find interesting.
After which, you are invited to register for our conference, and if you’re staying overnight here in the Rose City, may I humbly suggest you stay at the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower using our conference rate.
Can’t wait to see you in June.
