Makenzie, Nick: TPFF... We distributed over 150 right? (I'm remembering
something like 160-180. I may have those numbers in an old message.)
Everywhere else, I doubt we topped 50, though we may have gotten close.
So, lets try to balance expedient distribution with not running too short
My thinking on this is: If People's Media Center, or APS [YHS in original
message -- KJC] run short, they (or one of us) can probably burn CD's to
satisfy, as they're already converts -- and have their own "local talent"
and equipment to spare. So they're a bit more self-reliant. Individuals
from those groups (and this list) can also get their jollies by order a
10-pack directly from ShipIt. For Cleveland Park Library and especially for
TPFF, we're still "talking to the great unwashed" and/or "winning hearts
and minds" and it would be nice to put Ubuntu's best face forward: Slick
CD's in slick covers. Plus that a TPFF table costs money and is several
hours all concentrated with one purpose. Without CD's there, I doubt it's
worth the table space or the moving hassle of getting a van, etc.
