Re: OpenWorld

Just a note from the other Co-Executive Director of MOTS:

Your ratio of speakers to attendees right now is about 1:2.  This gives
everyone a great opportunity to interact with the speakers.  Food will be
provided all day including a continental breakfast and a great hot buffet
style lunch, not the box lunches you get at OOW.

We are planning on having an opportunity to go out to dinner on Thursday
night to a variety of restaurants in the Ann Arbor area.  Attendees will pay
for their own food and drink but we are at least setting up an avenue to
continue your networking opportunities.  You are also free to do whatever
you want.  We just wanted to do something for folks that are from out of
town.

And yes, I do have extra tickets (paid for by the attendee) to the Michigan
vs UMASS game on Saturday.  So if you are so inclined to be in attendance in
the largest football stadium in the US, then please let me know.  This offer
is for attendees only.
If you have any other questions regarding MOTS, please feel free to send
them to me personally at the email provided.

Look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.  As you know the Oak
Table is known to be a rather fun but nerdy group.  We are dedicated
technology individuals but many of us do have a life outside of work.
Thanks, Carol Dacko
