So, according to the minutes, the 9th Feb LA ctte meeting identified:

(uh, can we get shorter urls please? minutes/current/2004-02-09.html
would be fine...)

Perhaps we could demonstrate some of the ties between all these
Linux-related groups by asking OSIA to put some feelers out for people
interested in a roadshow in various areas, and maybe what topics they're
particularly interested in (saving money by replacing servers with Linux,
but keeping the same functionality? new server functionality they can
get from using Linux? putting Linux on the desktop? something else?)
