social networking sites to make the conference more useful and more fun. (We're sure we've missed useful sites and channels; please suggest others in the Python wiki.)
Internet Relay Chat
During the conference, many attendees will chat using IRC on the #pycon channel on irc.freenode.net.
During the conference, the organizers will post tasks and volunteering opportunities to the pyconvolunteers channel.
Jaiku is a micro-blogging site like Twitter, but with some extra features. Unfortunately, as of this writing they are not accepting new accounts while they deal with their acquisition by Google. Pre-existing members, though, do have a limited number of invitations they can give out.
On Jaiku there is a #PyCon channel as well as a general #python channel.
Presentations in PowerPoint/OpenOffice/PDF format can be posted to the PyCon 2008 event.
Please tag any photographs you take at PyCon with "pycon2008".
There's also a PyCon 2008 LinkedIn group that you can join.
