Media from the conference

We have quotes from three potential vendors.

Quote from Seamless:

   8550 equipment rental only
   19350 equpment + camera operator

Quote from Confreaks:

   15000 equipment + 6 staff

Eliot Center has added live-streaming capacity to the Sanctuary.

From Mike:

1) Camera Operator & Technical Director, Live switched with slides, Backup recording, Immediate upload/posting (this is how O'Reilly video is produced) $ 2,150 Day Rate per room ($ 12,900 a day for 6 rooms, $ 38,700 for 3 days)

2) Camera Operator, Zoom in/out on slides, Maintains good light & audio, No Backup recording, post production with graphics added, no more than 4 weeks after conference. $ 500 Day Rate per room ($ 3,000 a day for 6 rooms, $ 9,000 for 3 days)

Our Live Streaming keynote w/ sponsorship package is still $ 1,200 Day Rate per room.

Decision: we'll move forward with Confreaks for the session rooms, plus Brytcast recording and livestreaming the keynotes.

Fundraising / Sponsorship

Mozilla will sponsor at Citizen level, needs an invoice. Amy will remind them to send in the agreement.

Get more funders on the fundership!

>>>>>>> We picked some. <<<<<<<

Some speakers need places to stay; we'd like to connect them with community members.



Christie and Amanda to connect tomorrow about recruiting logistics coordinators Reid will connect with Melissa about catering orders


We will have the Doubleclicks! They will bring their own sound equipment; will need to do a sound check before the concert.

(Possibility of collaboration with our organist? Geeeenius!)

TODO: Christie will work with Holli at the Eliot Center to determine what space we can use, whether we can bring in bartenders.


.•*°*•. TODO: Reid will coordinate with Chris to get a server set up for the volunteer app.

Anyone who needs volunteers should get their list of needs to Amanda ASAP.
