This was essentially what the Iowa Training Days was all about when it was 
held in April.
The turnout from the various user groups that participated was 
pathetic...IMHO.  Trying to get people to provide presentations was also 
very hard.

[Cialug] Computer show?

Thinking bigger now:

If the Science Center doesn't go for the Linux Installfest
idea at their facility, I was thinking of pitching a grander 
plan: An Educational Computer Show.

1. Invite local user groups to come. Windows, Mac, Linux, BSD, 
anyone I've forgotten.
2. Have presentations by each.
3. Computers set up for Kids and Adults to play with.
4. Each group mans their area to education and assist. 
5. All day or All weekend event.

We will probably have to think a year or so in the future, and 
still plan our usual Installfest for this year. 

I may pitch the idea even if they allow our Installfest.

What do you think?
