Conference Photos

Conference Photos
Just a quick note to remind people to bring your camera to the conference.
We'll be looking for some new photos for the IDUG.ORG web page banner. You
can see what we are looking for in the current banner - people reflecting
the Worldwide DB2 User Community.

If you have some photos that you'd like to be considered for inclusion, drop
me a note after the conference with the pictures or a link to your photo
sharing site. The pictures have to be appropriate, so maybe you don't want
to take the camera to any of these great parties being planned. :-)

Maybe you could use different photos for each tab or make the photos
change so we can see more members at the conferences.

I always have my camera with me and take dozen of photos each year. I
never realized anyone would be interested.

Maja Markotic, has a bazillion pictures from IDUG 2007 Europe (Athens). She
shared them with several conference attenders on Flickr. You might want to
ask her for some conference pictures.

If anyone takes pictures at the conference, sharing them with Flickr works
really well.

I've enjoyed Maja's IDUG conference photos and have used several of
them to provide headshots for my contacts in GMail. I will look into
what it would take to create a Flickr photo pool for IDUG 2008 NA,
which should make it easier to collect photos from multiple
contributors.

If you look at the header on the website and Maja's pictures, they will look
familiar. She was kind enough to let me pull some from her site and they
make up most of the ones in our header. :-)

Obviously we don't have room for many right in the header itself, but they
rotate as you change pages and the intent was to have a series of the little
collages displayed after the various conferences.

It was commented that the photos make the header too 'busy'. It was flat
out boring before, but how does anyone else feel about seeing members in the
header?

I personally like the pictures. Nice job!

Conference Photos
(in response to Troy Coleman)
Have people been posting photos from the conference to any of the photo
sharing sites? I have some I am way behind posting, but was curious how
many people had some to share.

Will the photos on the on http://idug2008northamerica.site.shutterfly.com/
be kept there permanently? The conference website typically will replace
the 2008 information with 2009 stuff as we start getting closer to next
years conference. If the photos will be left on shutterfly, I was thinking
of adding the links to the idug.org website as part of creating a conference
'history' page. Do you think there would be interest in this?

Re: Conference Photos
(in response to Mark Labby)
If they're not going to remain on ShutterFly, could they possibly be
moved to Flickr.com, where they will persist? Maja put last year's EU
conference photos there and they've been very easy to find.
