How 'bout getting a few radio ads and getting much earlier coverage of the
upcoming event in Computer Scope. The lot here didn't hear about the event
until it was mentioned by some of us about two weeks ago. Also, if there
is a technical day coming up in Spring, then again let people know early on
through the media so that you can get the word out and get a much better
attendance. Also, one slight criticism. The ILUG site this year didn't
feature a direct link to the LinuxWorld site until quite late on, even
though the site was up and running. Also, the site should have been
LinuxWorld.ie instead of techcentral.ie/linuxworld IMHO. Because I hadn't
read computerscope and there wasn't a link from ILUG, I had to resort to
Googling. Thats too much work for the average suit in my experience.
