Hi Folks,

Once again we have been offered a FREE booth at one of the country's top open source conferences. I have to let Bala know by the 19th if we would like to take advantage of this opportunity. So here are the questions we must consider before committing ourselves to this ...

What do we have to "market" and who is our target audience?
Do we have any compelling stories to tell... Mexico? Haiti? Pakistan? Or???
Will anyone else besides the folks in SoCal be here to help "man" the booth for 3-Days(3/8-3/10)?
Do we have anything special to offer as "swag"?
What new software can we show? Running on what new hardware?
Can we offer some hands-on experiences for people there?

Please discuss! We did not participate in SCaLE in 2018 but did every year from 2008-2017.

My email service is acting up and I have to send this out in "batches" as entering some of your names erases everything!!! Put your replies on the IAEP list so everyone can see them.
