If one were to pursue this, is there a concise blurb that...
* describes free and open software
* directs people toward where they can learn more?

It seems to me that the target audience is someone who is at least a
little computer literate and who could be given a piece of paper they
can take with them. That paper would refer to one or more URLs for more
learning and trying free software.

In short, what is the simplest way to introduce people to the
exhilaration of free software?
