I'm not going to make it, as my familial travel-to-computer-show budget
is locked into the LinuxCanada show in Toronto in May, but I think it
would be a good idea to have some presence at every expo we can.  If
there's anyone else going to this show, please mention that here.  The
time is short, but we could still pull together something to demo. 
What's ready to go?  Off the top of my head, K12Admin, Dr Geo,
LingoTeach, and AUC.  They should all be ready to demo, I think.  If
we're going to do this, we need to set it up fairly quickly.  One other
thing; it would be nice if we could get some sort of SEUL (and also,
SEUL/edu) banner made to put up at a booth.  I don't know anything about
that sort of thing.  Does anyone have any experience with that?

One _other_ other thing.  There's work going on (behind the scenes) on
giving the entire SEUL website a consistent look and feel.  One of the
things that isn't being done at the moment, because most of the people
involved aren't skilled graphics people, is to design logos for SEUL and
its various parts.  Right now those would primarily be SEUL/edu and
SEUL/pub, but any design should be extendable to other parts
(SEUL/research, etc.).  If you look at the SEUL and SEUL/edu front
pages, you'll see the current placeholder logos in the upper left
corner.  I'm sure you'll agree that they aren't terribly exciting. 
Logos should have the same dimensions as those, and should fit the color
schemes of the pages.  So here's your chance to demonstrate your graphic
design talents.  Make us logos to make us stand out from the crowd!
