I could probably setup a box showing the latest Twitter posts about 
Lugradio Live using my Twitter search engine. I don't know if anyone 
here uses the service but I developed a search engine for Twitter called 
Tweet Scan (http://tweetscan.com) which runs on CentOS LAMP server. 
Maybe that should be a separate booth but if SF-LUG is in need of 
something cool and interactive in the booth, it's what I could offer.

Here are lugradio posts since a couple weeks ago:
