When I was at University, we set up booths outside the cafetaria
prominently displaying Compiz.  This was in 2005.  People were very
interested and stopped to take a peek at Linux doing "Amazing Things".
 Most of them left with one of the 350 Ubuntu Ship-It discs we had to
hand out :-)  I don't know if the LUGRadio crowd will be exposing new
people to Linux, but it is just a thought.  Will people at the Metreon
Food Court be able to see the exhibition?  If so, Compiz would be
helpful.  If not, try something even more flashy.  I plan to attend...

"It has been just so in all my inventions. The first step is an
intuition--and comes with a burst, then difficulties arise. This thing
gives out and then that--'Bugs'--as such little faults and
difficulties are called--show themselves and months of anxious
watching, study and labor are requisite before commercial success--or
failure--is certainly reached" -- Thomas Edison in a letter to
