This is far from urgent. :)

Aloha from AppSecEU!

I'll be at the conference today with Eoin and Justin Clarke at 6am to help
set up the registration tables. Drop by if you are around to say hello.

Thanks for all your hard work, Tobias. I'm sorry you had to waste time on
this email thread, we have much bigger "fish to fry".

 Ok guys,

I think you are totally misunderstanding the simple purpose of this 15min
intro talk.

Before I reply: as member of the org team for AppSecEU, I still have a lot
of work to get done for tomorrow and am a bit confused at why people are
making such a fuss about this on the day before the conference. Anyway
before your discussion seems to spin out of control here some facts about
what is going to happen.

*This is just a simple 15 min intro pres about what OWASP is for the
conference attendees. *

As there seems to be a lot of misconceptions flying round what this is:
- 15 minutes talk at the opening of the conference, intro about what is
- give brief intro to OWASP (members, stats, inspire for the conference,
sponsors for the conference...)
- mention the board and staff members who are present
- wish everybody a great conference time.
- End of presentation.
- Naturally if you want to stand next to Eoin and me on stage, please just
show up on time and be there. (my plan was to just point out people, but if
you feel better standing on stage works for me, too...)

And up to today, the day before the conference, nobody of you asked or
cared about this presentation in Cambridge. As I am part of the organising
team on the ground for London, I accepted that responsibility months ago
and did my duty to do the leg work to arrange the slot and prepare the
slides etc.

As you have seen, Eoin asked today to join the presentation and naturally I
am more than happy to include him and anyone else from the board who wants
to join. Just show up on time.

Unfortunately, I still need to get work done for our conference tomorrow,
so this is my last email on this topic for today. If you are having an
urgent problem with the content, please give me a call on my mobile.

Best regards, Tobias

 Agreed, Tom.

I'd like to see the entire board up front instead of just one member.
Recent trends are to have one member give "the talk" which I do not think
is best for us. Together we stand...

If we must only have only one board member on stage, then please share that
award. It's definitely an award. Tobias had the chance to give "the talk"
in Japan and I'd like to see someone else do it for the EU conference, or
better yet, let's all be on stage together.

 All board members in attendance are always welcomed and encouraged to
delivery the welcome as a group as we always have. It should also include
the staff on stage as well as core local organizers in attendance as well
to raise visibility, support for the hard work of the local team that did
the heavy lifting.

 Board meeting should be held before AppSec events so that the most current
data can be relayed to those in attendance and the board is actually in
sync for anything presented on stage recapping the "since last year we
accomplished together"

 You mean for AppSecEU in Cambridge?
That would be me.

For AppSecUS? I would assume Michael?
