I would be very intersted in doing this for 2003.  I don't have a firm
plan on the $ part, though I know I could at least personaly cover myself,
and some of the booth costs.

I will try and put together a presentation to submit, when that is put
online in the end of Aug.

Remember, the cost of the both itself is only a small part of it.

Shipping of anything used in the booth (at least at the Javit's center in
NYC, your not permited, by union rules, to bring in anything that you
can't carry in two hands, yourself, you must contract shipping into and
out of the confernence), Electrical, and Networking are not included.

One thing that is included is one full conference registration ($150

I don't know... If the hardware I am talking about in my previus post is
ready, I think I will be willing to fit most of the bill for a booth, if
not all of it, if it will get us any benifit.

I know I have done well with the booths at Linux World, talking with
parents about how to talk with their children's schools, etc.
