Re: [seul-edu] NECC and OSEF Knoppix for kids CDs
If you have the CD's displayed at our K12LTSP email garden you'll be
able to give out even more. My kids will be roaming the convention
center in white lab coats covered with penguins with big lettering that
says "As me for free software!" They can give out CD's too.
There will be 10,000+ teachers at NECC. Not all will come and see us but
I'm sure you could give away 1000 cd's. We'll come in the door with a
couple of hundred (each k12ltsp set is 3 CD-Roms) and will have a cd
burner there at the show with kids on duty to make more as needed.
We've used Linuxfund.org to great effect. We targeted our gift from them
for promotion and use it to buy materials for CD's to give away at
conferences. We do have "funded by linuxfund.org" on our disks. We're
happy to do that.
