    AFKFest 2011 Speaker Series Suggestions?

    Hey everyone,

    Rob and I have been brainstorming about what types of speakers would be interesting to have at this year's AFKFest. Here's what we've come up with:

    DIY Electric Vehicle Fabricator/ Car Computer integrator
    Expert on terminal mode for OEMs & aftermarket electronic manufacturers
    HMI expert
    iPad in vehicle expert
    Operating Systems in the vehicle
    Voice recognition expert
    XPrize vehicle and program manager?
    Mp3Car forum member's talking about their vehicles

    is there anything you're especially interested in right now you would be willing to talke about (if you're able to come)?

    Anyone have any input/ suggestions on these or who you would like to see speak under these topics?

    Would any of you like to speak at this year's event?

    Long blog post on May 7, 2011 AFK Fest/ Save the date info here:

    Thanks.

    Stephen

    We would love to have feedback from forum members. We're also working on a west coast meetup so even if you can't make this event we would love to have your feedback and we'll try to integrate it in this meetup as well as the west coast meetup. We will also try to live stream and video certain portions of the event for those of you around the world.

    I'm guessing HMI = Human Machine Interface

    I meant human machine interface when I posted this.

    It's going to be a great event here in Baltimore. The event will a part of Betascape this year. Lots of innovative tech, street vendors, live music in the evenings and the Maryland Film Festival will also be on the same weekend. Lots to see and do!

    I think it's a great idea that you're doing this as a part of betascape.. however will we still have our own space to stage our vehicles/do the contests as usual?
