[THIN] Re: An Independent iForum-like Conference?

And writing books as I look on my shelf and see your name.

I'm game on a cheaper version of iForum.  As soon as my superiors here =
Orlando they freak (they know I would skip out and go to Disney I =
guess).  I like the idea of Washington, DC and it being $500.  I'd be =
willing to speak out the proper way to post messages on the list.  =
(which of course is with the reply at the top of the email not at the =
bottom... the debate beings)  :-)

I want Jim to speak and my vote counts for a thousand so no one can =
speak against me.  As for topic's of discussions I would like to hear =
opinions of the phasing out of Citrix or should I say, how much longer =
Citrix has to live before M$ takes over their market.

Also, I would like this meeting to take place tomorrow at noon.  :-)

Later,

Gunnar

Subject: [THIN] An Independent iForum-like Conference?


Hi All,
=20

At the THIN list dinner at Shula's at iForum last year, a bunch of us
guys and gals sat around and talked about all sorts of things.

=20

One thing we discussed was that we felt that iForum was turning into an
"industry event" as opposed to a good old fashioned tech conference. We
discussed creating our own vendor-neutral server-based computing
technical conference.

=20

I've been busily working on this idea for several months now. I've
talked to a lot of you offline about it, and to vendors, hotels, and
management companies. I live in Washington DC, and we've even brought
this idea to the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority. Fairfax
county is the home of "Silicon Alley" which is the DC-area home to many
huge tech companies. (They love the idea, BTW.)

=20

So, here's what I'm thinking. I have a meeting with the FCEDA on Friday,
and I'd like to get your opinions on stuff:

=20

Independent Server-Based Computing Tech Conference, Washington DC, April
2005

=20

This is our event. We can talk about whatever we want. I talked to the
TS product group at Microsoft, and they seemed interested. I think we
could get some of the TS developers at this event. Also, we could talk
about MetaFrame, New Moon, Jetro, HOB, DAT, etc, etc.. plus all the
third-party tools. We could invite all the people from this LIST to
speak, and we can get together online to vote on the agenda, polls, etc.

=20

My idea is for this to be a technical event. I'd also like to make it
much cheaper than iForum, maybe around $500 or so.

=20

So, thoughts, ideas, suggestions?

=20

Remember that I don't have a job, so I can basically spend all day
working on putting this thing together.
