Technologies Showcase on May 30th and 31st In Clearwater Florida at the
Harbor View Center. This our second appearance with the promoter
of the Computer and Technologies Showcase. Last year was a huge success
and we were the hit of the show. The promoter has invited us back to top this
feat. Come out and show your support for the Linux community."
Come out and show your support: We have a great line up of speakers for the 30th: Jon `maddog' Hall of Linux International and VA-Linux Systems, 11:00am Keynote in the Special Event Auditorium Robin `roblimo' Miller of Slashdot Presentation 1:30 pm Ralph Cooley of IBM Corporation Americas Linux Sales `Covering IBM's Linux Initiative' 2:30 pm Buck Carhart of Caldera Systems Dexter Morgan of NeTraverse Makers of Win4Lin We also have lots of cool items as well: shirts, hats, stickers, flyers, distros, and lots of software, including some boxed sets from from S.u.S.E. and Caldera. The first 2000 visitors to our booth will receive a free issue of Linux Journal. Rumor has it that there will be a few free Tux penquins hanging around as well. While you're there, check our our Networking demos, all done with PC's loaded with Linux. And that's not all! If you're coming, please register for free admission at Techshows.com. You can also visit our web site, click on the CTS link page, and print out your ticket good for 2 people. As long as you pre-register, however, your admission is free. If you have a Linux company and would like to be part of this show, there are booths available at a discount in the Linux Pavilion. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity, and help us build our numbers, working toward a future Southeastern Linux showcase. To check rates and availability contact P. Scott Stemple Executive Director Computer & Technology Showcase email@example.com 800-422-0251 ext. 3021 As you may remember, the Suncoast Linux Users Group (SLUG) invited all Florida LUGs to come to our booth at the last CTS show last October, and lend their support. That first show was a tremendous success. We gave out approximately 2000+ free GNU/Linux distribution disks. Official numbers showed we were visited by the almost 2/3 of the total 6000 attendees. Even with an all volunteer crew and makeshift banners, we were the most successful booth at the show, beating even Microsoft's booth attendance by a 5 to 1 ratio. Join us at the show! If you can answer questions, make presentations, donate distros to give out, or just help promote the cause of GNU/Linux and Open Source in Florida, join us. There is strength in numbers.
