I think that we'll have better luck getting sponsorship if we're not asking
for a $1000 plane ticket and a $400 of hotel stay.  If somebody can
volunteer to go, I think that our "sponsorship" would be better spent on
getting good presentation materials (posters, flyers, etc) to hand out.  If
people are going to go hopping around the globe, they ought to have GOOD or
GREAT presentations that they're giving, otherwise we should shoot for
keeping things local.  Plus, local people will be more familiar with the
local Linux events, like LUGs and such.

Did anybody make a formal announcement requesting a member of the LDP to man
the booth?  I didn't see it, but I might not have been paying attention.  Is
there a list of all of these things hosted somewhere?  I didn't get much
information when I was part of it last time because my French skills suck.
I'd love to see a list, and to get a calendar on the website somewhere that
tells who's going, what materials they'll have, and what presentations, if
any, they'll be at.

We do now!  See?  It all works out for the best, just open up the
communication channels.
