    Please send applications to rubykaigi2008 AT jp.rubyist.net with the
    following details:
    SUBJECT: RubyKaigi2008/LT (Your Name)
    BODY: Please include the following details:
    - your name
    - your company/organization (optional)
    - a short bio
    - title of your talk
    - a summary of your talk
    - comments/equipment requests. A projector will be available for presenters.

    For further information:

    We're currently looking for volunteer translators. If you understand
    Japanese and
    can type English fast, we WANT YOU. We want to do translations to/from
    in real-time using IRC, which will also serve as a log of the presentations.

    As a volunteer, you'll receive an staff t-shirt (illustrated by _why),
    but will receive no other
    compensation. You won't need a ticket for the main event, but since
    you'll be volunteering,
    it is possible that you will not be able to see all the presentations.

    Please apply via e-mail to rubykaigi2008 AT jp.rubyist.net with the
    following details:
    SUBJECT: RubyKaigi2008/TL (Your Name)
    - your name
    - days you can attend
    - tell us a little about your translation abilities

    (no web page for this bit!)

    Hope to see you there!
