We're told by the PyCon organizers that they require an official request
and a commitment to staff the booth throughout the conference hours in
order to get the space reserved. They have the entire Expo hall
"bookable", so we're competing with people paying for the privilege of
displaying their "wares". We need to get the request in ASAP to avoid
losing the booth (i.e. yesterday-ish).
We'd probably need 5-6 people to man the booth throughout the conference
days without asking someone to spend the whole conference behind the
desk. I'm certainly willing to take a half-day or more. We should have
a good selection of XO's available. Would be nice if we had a table,
maybe a couple of posters and the like, but realistically I don't have
enough time booked for OLPC before the conference to get that done.
If we can get 5-6 volunteers to commit to it I'm willing to put together
an official request and move forward.
