21st Educational Technology Day at Ithaca College, USA Ithaca, NY,
2011-03-24, one day

Are any members of the Marketing teams planning to attend this
Educational Tech Day at Ithaca College?

If I had transportation for this one, I might be able to go. I am about
40 miles or so to the south from Ithaca NY.

[actually the last time I was in Ithaca, I had a stroke just after I
came back from a train event that I was selling
stuff at]

Actually get a few copies of the DVD[any version] to the teachers and
maybe they will make sure their IT people at their districts might like
it and save the taxpayers money over MSO.  I spend 3 years as a
Substitute Teacher and I know that 3 school districts in my area cannot
afford to pay for any more software fees, let alone for any new
equipment in today's market.


21st Educational Technology Day at Ithaca College
      USA Ithaca, NY
      one day

Educational Technology Day is a regional technology event that attracts
over 1,600 people annually from the upstate New York region. It features
local and national vendors such as Adobe, Apple, Dell, Epson, Hewlett
Packard, Microsoft and many others. -- Mostly tech vendors but
LibreOffice could perhaps make an appearance there. Targetted audience:
higher education and K-12 teachers.

First I've heard of it - looking at the list of speakers, there is a
talk from a Google emp, regarding google docs. Looking at the showcase
(expo floor) google, orcle and Ithaca free Software.

I just saw it on the Events page on the TDF "wiki" pages.

Ah, that last one looked good, so going to their website:

I see they advocate

Yes, since they started with OOo, maybe now they will go with the better package. It would be nice to have this free software group a part of the N.A. Community team or marketing group. Since they have several college/universities in the Ithaca area. Cornell is a major player in status for New York State Colleges. A lot of major research partners with industries at Cornell. IBM is big in the eastern direction about the same distance. One of their biggest [or at least use to be] manufacturing facilities and headquarters
in the Binghamton New York area.  Was not IBM a major helper with OOo?

Now perhaps, since they have a table there already, then perhaps someone
should contact that group and see what if any interest there is in
Also: too many lists to keep track of
This list, marketing @ libo is the international list, I doubt anyone in
Poland is concerned with an edu tech day in upstate NY NY, so please in
the future keep this to the US marketing list.

Yes the European groups might be a little too far away, but I thought the TDF groups might have an opinion on "supporting" local team[s] going to that event.
