We once tried to put on a kind of mini "Linux expo". We called it the "Linux Business Show". We got a lot of volunteers and a lot of interest, but ultimately, we bit off more then we could chew, and it did not go as well as we liked. The event was held on 19 April 2000, at NH Community Technical College, Pease International Trade Center, Portsmouth, NH.

FIXME this topic needs a lot more detail

Q: What "did not go as well as we liked?" What worked? What didn't? What could we do differently>
