GNOME.Asia Summit 2012: Event planning

Hi there,

Being a member of GNOME.Asia committee and bearing a responsibility willingly chosen, I have been spending some time lately on gearing up planning for GNOME.Asia 2012 Summit which is going to happen in Hong Kong.

The event organizers working behind making things happen this year are few and relative newbies with little experience in organizing events at such huge scale but they are giving their best effort! If you are an innate manager with noteworthy leadership skills willing to take charge of things and be the power with yourself in terms of getting things organized then this post is aimed at you! If you are good at marketing and have a PGO blog, you are most welcome! There are a number of small tasks you can help out with too. You can be an artist, a Hong-Kong based GNOME user, a content writer, a translator, website manager or simply a fan of GNOME willing to help!

Despite of limited time and even though I will not be making it to the event this year, I have been helping out in the ways I can to make the event a success! We are looking for more cheerful volunteers (both onsite and offsite) who will be devoted to the success of the event and be committed to it until it ends!

Organization is fun when you have equally high-spirited people around you. Looking forward to more eager "Hi!"s on asia-summit-list mailing list. You sure are going to love being the force behind a great event!
