This brings up the questions we should *really* be asking ourselves,
regarding *any* Debian expo presence:
What do we want the image of Debian to be?
What *is* the image people have of Debian?
What do people *expect* when they come to our booth?
I for one would think that "hacker meeting" is a lot closer to the
truth than "professional look".
Debian is *not* a company (even if some people have vested business
interests, and thus (consciously or not) want Debian to look
"professional" (whatever that is))
Debian *is* a hacker community, at least from my POV.
I do *not* want to portray Debian as some kind of "professional"
company, because it isn't.
I wanted to say that for some time now. Thanks for letting me get
