[maemo-community] Looking for Summit volunteers: time-keeping

Hi all,

I'm looking for volunteers to commit to time-keeping & question taking
duties during the Summit, to ensure we don't run wildly over time in any

The timekeeper will have a piece of paper with "5 mins" written on it,
to indicate to the presenter when they're running out of time, and will
handle the taking of questions & handing out of mic at the end of the
presentation, to ensure that everything is finished up after 25 mins. In
addition, timekeepers will brief presenters beforehand to let them know
the signals (5 mins signal, including Q&A, where you'll be sitting, etc).

So that no-one is overly burdened with timekeeping activities, I'm not
asking anyone to do more than 2 hours - you commit to staying in a track
you'd want to see anyway between two breaks.

I'm looking for 12 volunteers, one per room for before lunch, between
lunch and coffee and after coffee on Saturday, and before lunch on
Sunday. Can anyone interested please mail me, please?

I'm keeping track of volunteers and slots available in
