Seeking Publicity Coordinator for PyCon 2007

The PyCon organizers are looking for someone to volunteer as publicity
coordinator for PyCon 2007. This year we have started planning sufficiently
in advance that we'd like to get some press coverage in print magazines.

What is involved, you ask?

1. Brainstorm/collect a list of candidate publications for press releases.
2. Post the lead time and submission requirements for each to the wiki.
3. Develop or work with others to develop a (textual) press release layout.
4. At the appropriate time (e.g. when certain details are settled such
as keynote speakers), actually submit the press release.

There is a wiki page at the following on which to collect ideas on where to
submit a press release:

http://us.pycon.org/TX2007/PublicityIdeas

That's it! It really shouldn't take a lot of time; a bit of surfing, perhaps
a few email queries.

October has arrived and the deadline for submitting a proposal to give a talk at PyCon 2007 is October 31 (November 15 for tutorials). While it is a PyCon tradition to wait until the last minute to flood us with submissions, I would like to encourage presenters to start a bit earlier this year. We have a new talk (not tutorial) submissions system which lets you interact with your proposal online, rather than a fire-and-forget...

I've been looking over the mix of talk proposals we have so far for PyCon 2007. We're got 17 so far, with a good number of case histories. Now case histories are good, don't get me wrong, we want Python to be successful and it is interesting to hear how it is being used. But according to the feedback forms from last year, we need more talks that actually teach you how to be better programmers, especially if we want to bring new talent...

Thanks to all the proposal authors so far, we have received lots of proposals for PyCon talks & tutorials. But we'd like to have even more. Alas, the proposal submission deadline should have been set after a weekend, not before. So we have decided to extend the proposal submission deadline to Monday, November 19 at midnight (Chicago time). This gives you a *whole extra weekend* to write up your talk and tutorial ideas! If you've been...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Dear forum friends, With the development of smart home technology, a variety of wireless communication protocols have appeared on the market, such as Zigbee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. Each protocol has its own unique characteristics and advantages, but as a user who is planning to build a smart home system, I am a bit confused by the choice of these technologies.
