===== ORGANIZE YOUR OWN LOCAL KDE4 RELEASE 
===== PARTY/EVENT/GET-TOGETHER, THIS January 17-19, 2008,
===== OR ATTEND AT GOOGLE HQ MT. VIEW CALIFORNIA:

KDE 4 is having a release party/event January 17-19, 2008 at the main
Google HQ in Mt. View, California, USA.  Come attend (see
pre-registration info below), or organize your local event!

I am merely an interested attendee for this event - this announcement is
unofficial, just my own effort to spread word about this event, in the
hopes that others worldwide might also organize some get-togethers to
share in the knowledge generated. :)

You could be the person to organize your own local event!  Please also
notify your friends & interested persons - feel free to use this
announcement text. :)

KDE 4.0 Release Event; January 17  19, 2008; Google Campus

===== OFFICIAL RELEASE ANNOUNCEMENT:
http://kde.org/kde-4.0-release-event/#info

"In mid January 2008, the mojo of the KDE community will - for one
weekend - move to Mountain View, California, where Google Inc. invited
the KDE project to celebrate its KDE 4.0 Release Event as a three day
conference on the Google campus. Aside from being a conference for
Community members from America and around the world, we explicitly
invite press and our partners in the IT industry to come, see and feel
the spirit of free software and KDE. A whole day will be dedicated to
this important audience, hosting the official KDE 4.0 launch keynote
held by Aaron Seigo and other talks on the principles and innovations of
KDE, ending with a great KDE 4.0 Release Party!

This will be the first time for the international KDE project to have a
conference of that size held in America, which is a great chance for the
American KDE community - contributors as well as users - to come
together and discuss the future of KDE. You are community, so be there
to meet the makers of your favorite desktop environment, and discuss
your ideas and proposals to make it even better! But better be fast, as
the number of attendees is limited to 200 people."

---- My comment:
Personally, though Google graciously is hosting this for 200 people, I
think it would be great if 1000 or 10000 people showed up. Presumably
Google would limit their facilities to the 200 registered people, but
there is public parkland across the street, IIRC, - who knows - it could
be a KDE be-in! :)


===== COME TO THE GOOGLE CAMPUS - PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED?
If you can come to Mt View, California, for the attendee organized
meetings, I think that would be great.

http://kde.org/kde-4.0-release-event/#registration

"Are you part of the KDE community? Are you interested in free software?
Do you cover I.T. or free culture in the press industry? Are you
involved with an organization that partners with KDE or free software?
You should definitely consider attending our 4.0 Release Event in
Mountain View. The primary event is to be held on January 18, 2008, with
community meetings the day before and the day after.

To Register: Simply send an email to the KDE Release Team listing:

   1. Who you are (and if you represent an organization)
   2. How many people will be attending with you and their names
   3. What days you'll be attending
   4. Who will need hotel lodging for the 17th and/or 18th

It's that simple."


===== BASIC SCHEDULE:
Thurs 17 - Attendee organized community meetings
Fri   18 - Media announcements
Sat   19 - Attendee organized community meetings
