Hi all,

We're starting to think about inviting keynote speakers for the conference,
and we'd love to get your input. We expect to reach a diverse audience,
with representation from various countries, professions, genders, cultural
backgrounds, and levels of experience, so we need to make sure our array of
keynote speakers can appeal to this audience.

In the current working draft of the schedule
<https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tmqjTjK2w6qmbpGJo9_zZVkduPAYU4qTJm2x7K-TY7Q>,
there are slots for 5 keynote speakers.

So, what are your thoughts? Are there any broad themes you feel must be
addressed? Do you have anyone in mind who can speak well, has a great story
to tell, and can provide a thoughtful perspective on where we're headed as
a community? Or perhaps someone who has particularly interesting and
relevant experience, and can use that to catalyse new threads of discussion?

Though our community is regionally-based, we are part of a greater global
community. Of the 5 keynote slots, most should come from within our region,
but there is some scope for international speakers. We have a modest budget
for assisting with keynote travel costs.

Please let us know, either on this list or by direct email at
admin at foss4g-oceania.org. Hope to hear from you!

Cheers
John
