Subject: Speak at Flourish Conference 2011, Chicago, April 1st - 3rd
Date: Mon, 31 Jan 2011 22:24:37 -0600
From: Joel Luellwitz <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I am a fan of the Document Foundation and Libre Office and would like
to invite someone from your Foundation to speak at a conference I am
helping run. Flourish 2011 is Chicago’s annual conference dedicated
to open source, sponsored by the University of Illinois at Chicago
Linux Users Group (UIC-LUG) and the University of Illinois at Chicago
Association for Computing Machinery (UIC-ACM). The conference will be
held at the University of Illinois at Chicago on April 1st through
The Flourish Conference is in its fifth year and has previously has
previously hosted speakers from big names like Google, IBM, Microsoft
and even Sun (OpenOffice.org). More information about Flourish 2011
can be found at http://www.flourishconf.com/.
Our attendees would love to hear about The Document Foundation's
reasons for forking OpenOffice.org and how forking OpenOffice.org
changes the project's direction and features. While The Document
Foundation is based in Germany, I suspect your have representatives
(or key developers) close to Chicago who would be willing to speak at
our conference. However, in case you do not have a representative in
our area and if travel costs are an issue, please let us know as I am
certain we can work something out.
Please let me know whether or not you can send a representative from
The Document Foundation to speak at Flourish 2011. If you have any
questions about Flourish 2011, please e-mail me at
email@example.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Howdy - folks this may be the most important invitation you get this
year. This is the best place to find real coding contributors for the
project, from the US.
I have a rather long email written as to why I believe BUT will do you a
favor and not send it.
I will however just urge you to consider offering to go and present at
this event. Do not think someone else can do this for you - recruiting
of young talented software engineers is crucial and this is THE real
deal for a location.
