[OVC-demo-team] Demo Scheduled

From: Alan Dechert <alan_at_openvotingconsortium_dot_org>

I wanted to have the demo in March. We didn't quite make that. But we have
set a date for the next date possible after March, namely Thurs April 1 10am
Pacific. It will be in the county offices in Palo Alto CA for Santa Clara
County (supervisor Liz Kniss, former Mayor of Palo Alto is
faciltating)--thanks to Arthur.

We will do a preview/rehearsal to include select writers on Tues March 30
somewhere in Silicon Valley--exact time/date/place TBD.

We need help from everyone to make sure this all goes well. There are many
things to do: software testing, media, preparation of handouts, and a
variety of other things people can do regardless of location. For people in
the Silicon Valley area, we need help with logistics--setting up the
systems, helping with rehearsal(s), etc.

We will work this out so that it can be replicated elsewhere.

We will use several PCs but it occurred to me that it might be wise to
employ a Mac also. The demo will, after all, be near the HQ of Apple, so it
might help get some buy-in (think "Strategic Member") from Apple. Troy
Davis has tested the RII application with a Mac so we know it can be done.
I need a volunteer to setup/configure/test etc a Mac for the RII. Arthur
has a Mac that can be used for this.

We need your ideas but we need your footwork even more.
