Thanks for the feedback. If you can send me some contact info for O'Reilly, I'd 
appreciate it. I put a signup list on the wiki, but I'm assuming the people who 
can update it is limited.

Where did you host your signup list last year?

Last year I organized the booth... for some definition of the word organize.

First thing, make sure that someone, I'm guessing that is Dan M., reserves a
booth with O'Reilly. Dan, I'll dig up the name of the person that I talked
with last year and send it to you.

For last years booth I created a couple of handouts: one listing Perl
conferences that were happening in the next year and another listing some
Perl resources. Armed with those, some hard-candy, and some YAPC t-shirts to
hang up for decorations, I stood around the booth and talked to people about
Perl for the duration of the conference.

Overall, it was a decent booth I think... just obviously done on the cheap.

Also, there is a Perl banner that has been present at past OSCONs. It wasn't
around this year and nobody knew where it was. Luckily, O'Reilly had a Perl
banner from one of the first Perl conferences and let me use it.
We auctioned that banner off after the conference though, so we are back to
not having a banner/sign to hang.

I can probably dig up the handouts from last year. I think that I saved
them. They weren't amazingly fancy... a few pictures, a little promo text,
and lists of resources.

Sounds like there are :) And already more planning has gone into it then
