BarCamp is going to be GREAT! I'm still planning to do an Ubuntu
installfest during the day. This can be as simple as providing CDs to
anyone who brings their laptop and wants to try running Ubuntu on it,
and giving a helping hand with diagnosing things like wireless cards.

Even if you are not an expert, you can still help with this by
explaining to people how a LiveCD works, that they can safely boot into
Ubuntu and try things out without destroying anything that already
exists on their computer.

Does anyone have Ubuntu CDs they can bring? Otherwise I'll likely just
have ISOs of the latest Gutsy daily build, since the beta doesn't come
out until next week.

I'm going to attempt to record at least some of the talks and post on
