I would love to do this, *but* in conversation with others it seems like
a good idea to make this a low key event as far as linux.ie goes. We
have people to man the stand, (almost 6, got to reply to the last one)
but we could use the event as a launch pad for our own event later in
the year. Someone at the CLUG meeting on Thursday pointed out that these
shows are only launch pads for products anyway. We could really try and
push our own "Linux Day" to an audience that wouldn't know about it.
Hell, we might even get some MS people interested.
As Kate just suggested, we should sell them, people go to shows, get a
plastic bag and stuff lots of things in them and never read them.
Actually, that came up on Thursday too - plastic bags! Anyone know
someone who'll print bags? (Go to supervalu and look at the bottom of
theirs I guess if we're stuck ;) If we print nice looking bags with a
cute penguin logo, perhaps with logos from the distributors people could
be walking around the whole place with LINUX bags! That could go down a
lot better than CDs at an event like this..
