Hey. Im going to be presenting a talk about FOSS in libraries, and am
probably going to focus a lot on evergreen. This brings up the
question of what exactly do you think people would be interested in
seeing at such a conference.

I was thinking of giving an overview of what Evergreen/open-ils is,
and overview the costs of tradidtional ils' and compare those prices
to prices of evergreen support companies.

The ill go over installation and demo usage of evergreen.

does anyone have any more ideas of what i should talk about? possibly
how GPLS sort of instigated its creation?
