Description

It looks like we want to have Roger, Jake or Andrew on stage while they'll be in Paris. Let's find a place to do that. Depending on how much we advertise the event, I guess we can have an audience from 100 to 300.

I've reached out for a friend at IRILL.

Got positive answers to get a room at one of university in Paris for a talk through IRILL.

There are rooms close to the Bibliothèque François Mitterand:

  • We can get the 80 people room (Amphi Turing) easily at IRILL's lab.
  • To ask for the 200 people room (Amphi Buffon), there is a booking procedure. The submission requires a time, a title for the talk, a summary of the talk, a short bio of the speakers.

We could also reach out for maybe larger room at Jussieu.

It's up to us which path we take. I'd be tempted to try to book Amphi Buffon. Is a room for 200 large enough?

Roger, would you be doing the talk again? Could you provide me with a title/abstract/mini-bio?

What is the cost for each option?  

We should assume the talk will be lead by Roger, Jake and Andrew - or some combination of those three.  We might want others as well to help with this to bring more people to front of these types of talks.

These are facilities of public universities. Research labs can request them at leisure. IRILL is a lab about free software so Tor fit in their research target. In other words: nothing for the Tor Project, Inc. except gratitude.

My current plan is to *not* move forward here (I've done enough talks this year already), but instead to work on getting more people from the Thursday/Friday part to show up to Mozilla on Wednesday too, making it more like a three day hackfest.

(Kelley says we have the Mozilla space on Wednesday too, though for some strange reason she seemed unexcited to spend Wednesday inside when she had previously expected to spend it wandering around Paris. Anyway, I bet we'll find somebody to be our responsible adult on Wednesday.)

Adding to arma's comments here, we are still working on a "public" event in partnership with Mozilla on one of the evenings.  They have requested to take the lead on organizing their speaker internally first and I'm waiting to hear back (last poke to them was yesterday).  So this is still *in the works*.

Paris happened 14 months ago, so I assume it's safe to close this ticket now.
