Volunteer request: Tech Support

BlogHer Original Post

Anyone who was at the first Blogher conference will understand the gravity of this request. {grin}.

We NEED our very own volunteer tech guru for Blogher '06.

The tech guru will be responsible for the following tasks:

- Check ethernet/WiFi connections with their laptop (must have their own) in every room several times per day.
- Be point of contact for speakers/live-bloggers with tech difficulties
- Be point of contact with hotel IT person
- Organize and account for equipment in each room. Check that it is functional between sessions.
- The tech guru needs to be able to talk/do basic networking. Though the conference center will have a technical support staff member it is better if we have an in-house expert who can pitch in/ actually fix stuff without having to call the verizon head office;).

Your pass will be comped, but since you are comped you may miss some sessions because you have work to do. Such is life for volunteers.

Your airfare and hotel fees are not included in the deal, food and drinks both days are, however.

If you feel up to the challenge, do not hesitate to email mir(at)flinknet.com
