Interest in Virtual RTEMS Workshop

Hi Joel,

you know I thought about a workshop/conference/meeting some years ago,
but the reasons you list in your message exactly hit the problems. So I
think such a virtual workshop would be a good idea (wow, thank you,
corona! (at least for this)).

Presenting what RTEMS is used for, how certain problems got solved,
where RTEMS is traveling to... would be interesting.

Having some open talks about what the users like (and dislike) at RTEMS,
how the future should look... would somehow round it up.

And getting/completing a world map, where RTEMS users are located would
be nice to see too.
