As many of you know, the Bazaar has been going through a transition as we bring on a partner who will enable us to continue with our mission of creating a free software conference and expo that will benefit the free software development projects. That partner will be Earthweb, a company with a history of commitment to the developer community. Earthweb has been a tremendous supporter of our efforts and is excited to invest the necessary resources to bring us to a new level. Important to note: it is now definite that the dates of the Bazaar will change. We haven't settled on the new dates, but they will most likely be in July. It will still be held in New York.Click below to read the rest of the announcement.
Unfortunately, the transition has not been as smooth as desired. The legal issues involved in teaming up with a nonprofit organization are apparently nontrivial and are still unresolved. Please bear with us, as we finalize things. I apologize for any inconveniences. If there's anything I can do please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would also like to thank all of you who have supported us throughout this entire endeavor. Those who know the history of the Bazaar are aware that this has not been an easy task, and the support from the free software community has been invaluable.
We will issue a press release as soon as everything is settled.
ps- speakers and developers, if you have incurred any costs due to us, please contact me and we'll make arrangements to help you cover them.
