There are four penguicon mailing lists. The general
attendee discussion is on the yahoo group
The yahoo group
is specifically for organizing the five panel tracks we're going to have.
Penguicon's administrative stuff happens on the sourceforge list
The Open Source expo side of things has its own list, penguicon-tech.
You can subscribe, unsubscribe, or view the archives of the
above lists through those links.
News bulletins are posted on the website (in the news
section), somewhere between daily and weekly (with the occasional two-week
gap as your humble webmaster is on the road and away from network access).
I admit it's more of a penguicon-oriented blog than anything else, but hey. :)
There is a #penguicon IRC channel on freenode,
run by 'carbon' (David Simon), who says he's usually online 2PM to
midnight PST. There may also be a bot named "SpocksBeard" you can get some
info from, I don't know. (Ye Olde webmaster does not do IRC much. I have too
many other time-sucking black holes to juggle.)
In terms of individuals you can email, the convention Chair is Tracy Worcester
(tracy at capitalrating.com, or tracywmail at yahoo.com). She has the final
say on everything, and if all else fails she's the person to bug.

nothing I can do about it.) They can be contacted by phone, email Tracy

connection with the con).
