(If they have a .org pavilion, LA could probably have a larger booth over
there - makes more sense if you read the next bit...)

We discussed this at the OSIA NSW meeting yesterday, and I think the
consensus was that we could get more coverage by actually having them
further apart. Both LA and OSIA have been offered smaller booths at the
front - perhaps if there is a .org pavilion, LA should set up camp there,
while OSIA sits in the more industry oriented section?

(Then again, perhaps LA has a few messages to take to the industry oriented
folks that OSIA won't be representing.)

Thought-candy for you.
