Hi Ian,

thanks for summarized that. This is really a great success for the team 
that we have at the moment one presentation and one workshop online. Due 
the high travel costs I booked now flights and hotel and I'll be there 
Tue(evening)/Wed/Thu. That brings me to the first question: In which 
timeslot we're active in The Forum? Also the form of The Forum? We have 
an open discussion round or more like a panel? Would be definitifly 
btw: for the Hands-On-Workshop I could also help. Maybe we start with an 
extra etherpad to plan? Or we use the same like [4]? Maybe you have 
already some ideas :)
Also I think zzxwill, jftalta and I will have an extra meeting about our 
presentation to share our ideas.
Thanks also for the link to the fungi message. I was also a little bit 
confused about the $300 voucher. For the future I think we have to 
decide, if we need PTG or the summit or both to work on the targets for 
the team. But at next we should focus how to rock Boston.

kind regards
