I apologize for following one announcement with another, but I left
out some helpful links and information that could be useful for
community members who don't follow the wiki or planet feed.[1]

FUDCon F11 Boston will be held all day January 9-11, 2009, at MIT's
Sloan Building as previously noted.  You do not need a Fedora account
to use the wiki page to pre-register for the conference:


FUDCon, as always, is free of cost and open to anyone to attend.
Pre-registration entitles each attendee to a complimentary gift, lunch
on Saturday, and dinner and a beverage on Sunday.  

Also, please sign up for a BarCamp or hackfest session.  These
sessions can include any topic around which you want to gather people
to collaborate and learn.  Many sessions are not announced until the
event begins, but pre-announcing them gives other community members a
chance to see more reasons why FUDCon is such a worthwhile event for

Pre-registration will end on or about December 19th, so sign up today.

[1] The decongestants aren't helping either. ;-)
