Hi Sumana,
I'm helping to organize the Seattle GNU/Linux Conference this year. We are
particularly interested in having some fresh voices at SeaGL. I was
wondering if you would help me reach out to Wikipedians who might be
interested in speaking by forwarding the CFP info?

When: October 24 & 25
Who: The audience will be a mix of ~250 professionals, hobbyists and
Where: The conference takes place in central Seattle -- a walkable
neighborhood with great food and coffee that is easy to get to on public
Other cool news: Our keynote is Karen Sandler, a longtime free software

Call for Participation:

I'm happy to offer feedback on new-to-speaking people's proposals if that
helps them get over the hump. Thanks for your help!
