I understand about the possibility of hidden costs, but until or if we hit that obstacle, let's see what we can do.


Thanks Louis!

It would still be a great place to have a booth. They're not specifically software or FOSS-oriented, which means we'd be reaching a new audience. They are all about the 'creative economy' and 'digital,' so they would be very sympathetic to us.

If a smooth talker (Louis?) can get them to give us a booth, I will staff it the whole time, and bring at least one other New Yorker with me.

I can try. Give me a contact name.

Again, I'm all for getting non -techie conferences going, provided we can swing the costs. They can be hidden and they can be formidable.

We can certainly target others. We had successes in COMDEX, for
instance, CeBIT (ongoing) is a big one that transcends linux, and
there is JavaOne, we can now attend, as well as other, more
mainstream ones. However, the nonLinux ones often ask us for money,
or at least it is more difficult to get a boothspace.

Still: select some we should target and make a case.
