BL at Linux Fests/FOSS events

Hello everyone,,
Not to poke this hornet's nest with a stick of the longest length (and to be honest, I think these are two different issues), but I was wondering if there is any interest in having a BunsenLabs presence at any Linux Fests or other Linux/FOSS events going forward.

A little history: Here in the U.S., we (or actually I) organized events for #! at the Southern California Linux Expo (SCALE) -- what's called "Birds of a Feather" (BoF) events, where those who already use $DISTRO or $SOFTWARE meet and discuss the distro/sofware, and introduce those who may be new to it or interested in it -- and there have been #! booths at two past LinuxFest Northwest (LFNW) events. One year at LFNW, we held a #! gathering where we got corenominal to speak to the group via Google Talk, which went very well (I also did a session on #! at LFNW which went pretty well, too).

As the publicity chair for SCALE, I have a unique skill set in organizing a booth presence and/or a BoF-type events as well as having good connections with all the shows on the continent. So needless to say, I'd be glad to help.

Anyway, unlike the discussion linked at the outset of this post, the question of whether to have a presence at fests is grounded more in the nuts-and-bolts practicality of getting people introduced to, and fostering an interest in, the BunsenLabs project, which would result in growth based on more folks willing to use it and help out. It isn't part of a "grand plan" to make BL the next Ubuntu (God forbid).

Something tells me I should probably put on a fireproof suit now and wait for responses . ... smile

Is anyone in the core dev team living in the US at all?

I'm in Charleston, SC, and not flying to Cali anytime soon. But if you want to promote BL in your area, by all means, be my guest! MALA! (Make America Linux Always!)

I would think Make America Linux Aware.

It is better than the Spanish version of the word: mala = bad

→ executing a perfect, OK reasonable, swan dive into the BL Patio Pool just outside the BL Coffee Room

Oooo, I LIKE that! I made one person Linux aware today, BTW!

Bested twice in one post. I blame myself!

Re: BL at Linux Fests/FOSS events

I'm right here in CA would love to stop by the Blabs booth at SCALE! Couldn't see any better reason to go back to SoCal. Besides Hooters in Hollywood of course.

May I recommend: Blabs booth at SCALE! first cuz if you go to hOOters first you may be cross-eyed and not interested in Linux afterwards.  yikes   lol  lol  lol

Re: BL at Linux Fests/FOSS events

A mandatory bunsen burner should be on show if this goes ahead. Preferably working and making red flame out of lithium chloride! smile

Or if safety is a concern, even a mock up burner with lithium flame would be pretty cool.
