[Hyperledger Project TSC] Fwd: IMN conference on blockchain <> Hyperledger

Brian Behlendorf

Hello TSC.  I've started to ramp up HL's public outreach and presence at relevant conferences, especially those where there is a mix of technical and business attendees. There are more qualified opportunities to speak than any one person can do, so I'd like to share those opportunities with the community.  I'm very eager to see us as the developers represented at these conferences as representatives of the Hyperledger community, while also recognizing the need to represent one's own company if travelling on company time and dime.  For the time being I'm thinking that the TSC mailing list may be the best place to forward these opportunities, and then I can filter and forward as appropriate.  Eventually I envision at some point setting up a dedicated list and process for this.  Perhaps we can put together a sort of virtual speakers-bureau to help us scale this, where we work on common presentation decks and other things.

In the meantime, I'll forward relevant opportunities here.  IMN appears to be a well qualified event in NYC on Sep 28th.  Here's the draft agenda: https://www.imn.org/investment-management/conference/DLT2016-Blockchain-Financial-Institutions/Agenda.html

They expect "over 50 senior execs from the major banks confirmed along with leading advisory, legal and technology firms"
and would "love to have the technology side of our program reinforced with the participation of the Hyperledger Project. I am interested in your input on the program/content and ideally having Hyperledger represented on our speaker faculty."

Would anyone who's been actively involved in the project be interested in this?  I can support where I can, I just can't be in NYC on that date, as I'm doing an event in Beijing.  Let Ray and I know - Ray is helping with coordinating these activities.  Thanks!
