Hi All,

We've got an exciting day coming up on February 12th where Mozilla will 
be running a video booth at the Dare2BDigital conference[1] for young 
women 13-16 to spend the day engaging with technology and being exposed 
to the variety of possibilities that exist for someone who pursues an 
education in STEM fields.

Here in Mountain View, several folks have volunteered to help out on 
site: Rainer and Marcia will be handling the cameras & interview station 
where we will capture participants, parents & speakers discussing their 
interests and areas of knowledge. At the same time myself, William, and 
Mary will be teaching 30 girls (10 per session over 3 sessions) how 
HTML5 and open video lets you run your own show - no YouTube or Flash 
needed!  The key component of this tutorial will be demonstrating the 
Universal Subtitles project and having the girls work on doing subtitles 
for clips of footage shot during the day to share online.

It would be amazing tp have a few localizers be available and online 
during the workshop times to do translating nearly simultaneously in 
order to showcase the power of universal subtitles. If anyone on this 
list is available during the following times and willing to do some 
translating to their language of choice please let me know and we can 
coordinate closer to the day:

Date: Feb 12th, 2010
All times are PST, UTC -8
3 workshops:
10:15am - 11:30am
12:30pm - 1:45pm
1:45pm - 3:00pm

Let me know if you can make it.
