Time to vote for MySQL sessions at FOSDEM

Fosdem 2012 info There is a room dedicated to MySQL at FOSDEM 2012. (Thanks to @lefred for organizing). The CfP has received 37 submissions, but there will be time slots only for 12 to 15 talks. So now it's up to the community. If you want to attend a particular talk, you should vote for it. Like in previous years, the selection of the talks is public. You can see the list of the proposals, with the instructions, which I repeat here. You can vote either publicly, using Twitter, or privately, by sending an email. Each talk proposal will be referred by the number immediately after the title in this page. This number indicates the order in which the proposals were received. In public, you should send a tweet to @opensqlcamp, indicating a maximum of 12 talks that you would like to see, in the order you like them. e.g. "@opensqlcamp #FOSDEM2012 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12" (adding the link will help others to find the page. In private, by email at mysqlfriends AT gmail DOT com, using the same method used for Twitter. Maximum 12 talks, in the order of your preference. In both cases, votes for your preferences will result in 1 point for each talk. In case of equal voting, we will assign 12 points to the first in the list, 11 to the second, and so on. We'll do the tally, and choose the most popular ones. Anonymous votes either by Twitter or email won't be counted. If you want your vote to count, make sure your twitter account has a recognized name (or known nick) on it. If your email address doesn't spell your name, please sign the message with your real one. DEADLINE: Your votes must be entered by January 8th, 2011.
