The Linux Mark Institute, now part of OSDL it seems, is attempting to
charge organisations which use Linux in their name - even non-profits
I think we should resist this move on principle. It may only be US
$200 per year at the moment for a non-profit, but I don't think it's
really in the spirit of free software to go round mugging people for
money like this. I thought the name Linux was trademarked to prevent
it from abuse.

Thanks for the floorplan. Are you planning to use the basement level
floor at Olympia 2, or is it just the one at street level?
Previously, we haven't booked a stand number in advance, just fitted
in wherever was left. We don't have any funding for next year yet
either, but we would be happy to give some presentations in the
seminar programme, perhaps in the SoS Theatre.

Thanks for the invitation to be part of Sounds Expo next year - I
agree that the move to Olympia 2 is a good one, and the lower ceiling
should help with the acoustics.
Linuxaudio.org has provided an information stand at the last two
Sounds Expo events, and we would like to be involved again. As Ed or
Kieron will tell you, we rely on funding to cover the costs as we are
a not-for-profit organisation. Last year our stand was sponsored by
I like the idea of the new Education Zone - perhaps we can help out
there. We could also put on some presentations, as we did last year.
