(This is a resend of the message I sent 5 days ago.)
As Gabor mentioned in his welcome message to the list we need to think
about things that we can give away at the stalls we plan to have at
the various conferences.
Gabor mentioned the round-tuits that have been given away at other
Perl events. TPF uses these each year at OSCON and I inquired about
the cost. We have been paying $70 for 150 of them or $90 for 300.
I go to quite a few conferences each year and I have been trying to
think if I have been given anything interesting this year. At OSDC
Australia I was given a postcard that was an advert for linux.conf.au
which is taking place 18th-23rd January next year.
(The conference web-site is at: http://www.lca2010.org.nz/)
This was an interesting enough way to let someone like me know about a
new conference. It's not heavy, doesn't take up a lot of room, and I
did bring it back to Tokyo with me. (Lots of the advertising material
I am given ends up in the bin before the end of a conference as I
don't want to carry anything that isn't necessary.)
Unfortunately I didn't get time to photograph it before started to
travel again. When I get home at the end of the month I'll go through
all the conference bags I got this year and photograph anything
interesting I find.
All the best,
