Well in the absence of anything else to go with then the options are rather 
limited.  Anyway I'm sure the delegates of the expo will be expecting (and 
receiving) plenty of sales pitches over the three days.  I think what Chris 
has put together is at least in context and pretty much project-neutral (in 
that he gives mention to plenty of people) and balanced view of Linux Audio 
for the outsider.  Of course YMMV but one thing I think I can say is that 
from our experience of showing Rosegarden having something to give away is 
better than nothing.  People will take all the printed information you can 
throw at them.

Whether they actually read it is another thing entirely of course.

BTW what's the situation with banners and posters for the backboards?  Did you 
(Steve) say you could run off a few bits and bobs or did I dream it?  It'll 
be easier if we have too much stuff to put up then not enough and go off 
looking half baked.  Probably tomorrow we should come up with a list of 
banners/posters to print off (perhaps even just big logos) so we can 
visualise the stand a little and prevent arguments on the setup day.  Unless 
Dan has already got this covered?

Anyway - probably a relatively easy task for a difficult Monday morning.
