Well, whatever about the rest of it, this bothered me:
"Internet Innovators Pavilion:
Stand space is available for IIA members only..."
I don't *care* if they're one of the sponsors - by barring non-iia members
they're not giving a real overview of the Irish Internet scene. I'm not a
member of the iia (and neither is anyone else in ieWebs, although that's
their decision), and I doubt I ever will be. And if any of my prospects view
that as a requirement for ieWebs to develop their website, well, the word
"orifice" springs to mind, together with "shove"...
Is the ILUG a member of the iia I wonder? Ok, I'm only kidding - it really
doesn't matter. In my view it would be excellent for the ILUG to make an
appearance at the show. It doesn't matter about the Microflot bias and all
that other rubbish - at the very least you might create a couple of
converts. The exposure is a requirement rather than an option.
