Darn, I didn't see this email until I sent mind. Hope you don't mind.
In order to stay organized, I will paste the text of my other email here
so people can respond to this thread.
Here is a quick summary of what I would personally like to contribute to
the OSCON table and my opinions on the questions about the booth that
are still under discussion.
I would like contribute the following:
A video showing off the ubuntu desktop (compiz / look-feel / etc) and
key apps that can be run on the ubuntu desktop (OO.org, Firefox/Hulu,
Wine, Banshee etc). I will upload the video to youtube tomorrow; so,
people can comment on it and we can improve it. I can provide a 22 inch
lcd screen (at least) to show this on if it is accepted.
I will print a large reusable banner. I would like to discussion the
dimensions of this and where to get high resolution stock ubuntu images.
I will contribute up to $60 for power as it is obviously necessary for
my video demo idea.
About the major questions of interest:
Should we have network: -1 (I don't think it is worth $400 and
hopefully enough smart phones are present)
Should we have power: +1 (I think this is absolutely necessary to have a
professional looking booth)
Should the space be split 50/50: +0 If it is possible to do it so that
it does not misrepresent Ubuntu as being a local group or a casual
organization than I am for it. If it takes away from the professional
aspect of the booth, I am against it. Which ever way it is decided, I
pledge my time both days to help make the Ubuntu and LUG booths be a
Should LUGs be promoted: +1 At the very least Ubuntu's booth should hand
out flyers and perhaps present a poster showing locations of places
where you can get help in the California area (i.e. LUGS).
