   The SouthEast LinuxFest (SELF) is a community event that is open to
   everyone who is interested in Linux and Free & Open Source Software. SELF
   will be held at the Clemson University Hendrix Student Center in Clemson,
   SC on June, 13th 2009.

   We have an "all-star" line-up of F/LOSS speakers who have generously
   offered to commit their time, and to share their knowledge and insight to
   help us grow "Linux in the GNU/South." The following speakers have
   (barring any issues which may arise) confirmed their attendance:

   - Chris DiBona, Google ([1]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_DiBona)
   - Brian Leonard, Sun Microsystems
   - Wendy Seltzer, EFF ([3]http://wendy.seltzer.org/ )
   - Mark Spencer, Digium ([4]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Spencer)
   - Icculus a.k.a., Ryan Gordon
   - Paul Frields, Fedora ([6]http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PaulWFrields)
   - Michael DeHaan, Red Hat
   - Russel Bryant, Digium ([8]http://www.russellbryant.net/blog/)
   - Robbie Workman, Slackware ([9]http://rlworkman.net/)
   - Pete Granger, Canonical/Ubuntu ([10]http://www.canonical.com)
   - Joe "Zonker" Brockmeier, openSUSE ([11]http://www.opensuse.org)
   - Wade Olson, KDE ([12]http://wadejolson.wordpress.com/)

   While we are making spirited progress, we cannot do this without the
   support of other LUG's and LoCo's in the Southeast. Having strong LUG
   support is vital to the success of our event, both in it being a memorable
   and enjoyable experience, and in our seeking additional sponsorship. You
   can begin supporting this event now by: posting the SELF banner on your
   blogs, wikis, and Web sites; printing copies of the SELF flyers
   ([13]http://southeastlinuxfest.org/sites/default/files/SELF-Flyer.pdf and
   [14]http://southeastlinuxfest.org/sites/default/files/self_flyer.png) and
   distributing them at your meetings and around your community; and by
   asking your members to register on the SELF Web site. Feel free to
   appoint someone from your LUG to join our mailing list, and to attend our
   weekly IRC meetings (every Tuesday night at 9pm EST on
   #southeastlinuxfest), so that they can keep your LUG up to date on our
   plans as we move forward.

   We are looking for sponsors! Businesses, non-profits, and educational
   institutions interested in sponsoring SELF should direct inquiries to
   [15]info@southeastlinuxfest.org. A vendor prospectus is available on our
   Web site.

       - Reserve a table space for your LUG if you'd like to showcase your
   group and it's activities.
       - Get audio and visual materials to help promote the event...and much

   Help us to spread the word about SELF '09 to your local businesses,
   non-profits, colleges and universities, and anywhere else you might find
   Linux users, supporters, and newbies. We want this event to be fun and
   educational for Linux users of all skill-levels. There will be a number of
   breakout sessions held throughout the day where users can learn tips and
   tricks, as well as pick up useful skills and information from their peers.
   If members of your LUG or LoCo are interested in hosting a breakout
   session or setting up a booth to showcase your efforts in the community,
   please contact [17]community@southeastlinuxfest.org.
