Hi there, this is Bill Kendrick, co-founder and president of the
Linux Users' Group of Davis [1][2].  ( http://www.lugod.org/ )

I took it upon myself (since I always seem to be the one who does this
kind of stuff ;^) ) to query the local Linux User Groups and find out
if they'd be interested in putting together a LUG booth at this year's
OSCON in July.

(LUGOD had their own booth at LinuxWorld Expo once, and we put together
a multi-LUG booth at another LWE.)

Unfortunately, it seems I didn't get around to asking the LUGs and
confirming with O'Reilly until it was too late: the .ORG Pavillion is
full, and we've been put onto a waiting list.

I heard that Ubuntu-CA will be having a booth there, and wondered if
you'd be willing to share some space for the LUGs and some volunteers.

Right now I've jotted down a dozen people, representing six bay area LUGs,
who've shown interest in seeing this happen and/or helping make it happen.
See the OSCON booth organizing page I've put up over at the LUGOD site:

Would this be possible?  Is Ubuntu-CA interested?
