Re: COSCUP / GNOME.Asia Press Release (English Version)-- Need your help to review

Thank you Stormy for the edits.

For the quotes, since this is just the first draft, we will incorporate later with more quotes from core sponsors and local organizers.

[ccing Zonker. Or should I cc the press team, Zonker?]

I just made the edits inline.

In the 3rd paragraph, the main themes should be at most 3. We could say instead "Some of the topics covered at the conference included ..."

What about the quotes you got? Do you plan to incorporate those?



COSCUP / GNOME.Asia 2010 attracted more than 1000 developers, students, business professionals and government officials participants and more than 22 well-known international and domestic companies as sponsors. 

This year, the COSCUP worked with the GNOME Foundation to co-organize the GNOME.Asia Summit together with the COSCUP annual conference.  The joint conference COSCUP / GNOME.Asia 2010 was hosted on  Aug 14 - 15, 2010 in Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan. COSCUP is a local conference organized by the local community that has been growing every year. This year, along with GNOME.Asia, it attracted more than 1000 participants. The conference was sold out just an hour and a half after the online registration opened up! In addition to the 1000 participants who were present at the conference, there were also more than 700 people participating through the online video and text broadcast.

The main theme for COSCUP/GNOME.Asia 2010 were HTML 5, Open Web, Mobile, GNOME free desktop technology, and legal and license in FLOSS community. More than 80 talks delivered by 60+ international and domestic speakers; they delivered speeches, joined panel discuss, brainstormed, and exchanged new ideas at this conference.

Well-known international and domestic IT companies were also actively involved in this conference. The highly skilled audience also provided them with the opportunity to recruit new employees. They were recruiting for more than 50 kinds of jobs and 1000 opening jobs. Nokia promoted and sold their N900 cellphone and invited speakers to share their latest knowledge and experience about Meego and Symbian 3.

As a result of the conference, the local Taiwanese community and surrounding Asian countries are now more actively involved with the international GNOME community, building a better relationship with the official community and the GNOME Foundation. For example, the local community registered the Chinese HTML Interest Group with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) ; they are working with the GNOME Foundation to build the upcoming Taiwan GNOME Users Group; and they are planning to start a Taiwan Cloud Computing Users Group with international and domestic engineers.

The presentations and videos are available on the official website. Please visit COSCUP and GNOME.Asia offcial website:  and

Hi all,

I have finished the draft English version of the COSCUP / GNOME.Asia Press Release.

We need the native English speakers' help on review and edit it.
