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.

=20
