My name is Danny from the Ubuntu Massachusetts
Team<http://www.ubuntu-massachusetts.com> and i'm
writing to ask if we could work together for holding a booth at Anime Boston
2010 <http://animeboston.com/> in April. Last year, we went in and dropped
off 50 copies of the Ubunchu
Jaunty CDs attached and they were all gone within the first couple of hours
of the first day of the convention (it seemed to be the only thing on the
flyer table that people actually wanted). Over 15,000 people attended in
2009 and the number goes up every year. Convention goers are a great target
audience who are very open minded and receptive to Ubuntu. This year, we'd
like to get a booth in the dealer's room, but unfortunately, there are no
discounts for non-profits. We've already come up with a lot of ideas so far
on what we could offer:

   - Freebies (distribute them in registration bags so that *every single
   convention attendee* receives one)
      - Ubuntu LiveCDs with
      to our LoCo and System76
      - Copies of the Ubunchu
      - Bochures on Ubuntu, System76, and our LoCo
   - Demonstrations
   - Talk to people about free software and our LoCo, promoting Ubuntu, and
   recommending System76
   - Sell USB drives with Ubuntu loaded on them *
   - Raffle/auction a customized System76 laptop with laser-etched Anime
   Boston design and anime themes *
   - Sell some System76 computers with anime themes (wallpapers from
   - Sell other Ubuntu merchandise *
   - Get everything on video (i have a full HD camcorder)
   - Make Ubuntu the preferred OS for anime lovers!

* needs additional funding

I might also be signing up for a tech staff or volunteer position at the
event so i can be an inside man spreading Ubuntu and recommending System76
to everyone running the convention (during one of the main events at the
last one, i remember hearing Windows error sounds!). This has a lot of
potential so please write back if you're interested in a partnership for the

Thank You~
