Josh, 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.
http://www.perlfoundation.org/perl5/index.cgi?events_2010_oscon Where did you host your signup list last year?

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. > > Can someone point us at information regarding this? > > It's organised internally so I don't know if there is any information > that I can point to. > 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. > > > Are there plans to have a TPF/Perl booth on OSCON this year? > > I haven't seen any discussions about this yet but I imagine we will > start to plan it before YAPC::NA. > > Sounds like there are :) And already more planning has gone into it then last year!
