2008 Geek Moot Donation Drive

Posted: August 15, 2008 by Ted Kulp

Hey all, Well, between vacation and some life changes, I'm a little behind on everything CMS related. Luckily, things are getting back to normal (I'll post as to why next week)... but I'm now playing catchup on a lot of things. In fact, here is one thing I should've done 2 weeks ago. The CMS Developer Geek Moot 2008 is next weekend. I'll be having 6 people come to my house for the weekend to talk all things CMSMS. With that, I want to show people a good time. Furthermore, we've discussed the idea of putting the meeting up on a broadcasting site of some sorts for the community to watch and interact with. We also want to video conference in Calguy this year properly. However, to do that with some kind of decent quality, I need to get some equipment. Here's what I propose... I'm looking to raise $700 in less that a week. $350 of it will be for a 10 channel USB mixer and 6 lavaliere microphones. The rest will be used for beer, steaks, and potentially a nice dinner for the group. I want to handle this like last year. Donators will be added to this post on a daily basis and moved over to the donations list on the main site. I might be a bit slow on updating today and tomorrow, as I'll be driving from South Carolina to Philly to conclude my vacation. But the rest of the time, I'll update the previous day's donations the next morning. Assuming we raise the money in time, I'll post the broadcasting details later this week along with pictures of the setup and probably run a few tests to make sure it's all working correctly. What do you guys think? I know it's a little last minute, but I think we can pull this off and have a really great developer's conference this year again. Thanks!
