I hadn't seen any responses here, but I am definitely going to this
show.  If any other local or regional NA ambassadors are going, now
would be a good time to respond on the list. :-)

We have a booth or table for Fedora, AIUI.  Since I haven't done one of
these shows before, I'm not sure how the logistics work.  Here's my best
shot:

1.  We find out how much space we have at the booth/table.
2.  We figure out what we can do with that space.
3.  We figure out how to get appropriate equipment, schwag, bannering,
etc. to cover those goals.
4.  We make sure that stuff ends up at UTOSC by the time we're there to
set up.
5.  We return that which requires it.

I guess this is pretty rudimentary, but I just wanted to open the
conversation with that.

Other notes:
* I'll be there with a laptop, and I am going to try to get a OLPC XO to
show at the booth as well.  Is anyone else bringing one?
* We don't have a formal "USB creation station" but with an attendance
in the hundreds, can we make do with a laptop?  And should we create
advertisements for this offering?
* What schwag is already headed for this show?
