Recap

Mercury Networks expected between 160 and 170 attendees, but the actual turnout broke 200. The Ubuntu booth manned by Brian (hal14450), Charles (cprofitt) and Carl was packed with people between seminar sessions. We handed out over 60 CDs and attendees filled out more than 180 contact cards. The Linux security tools presentation given by Carl was so well attended that chairs from other rooms were borrowed and it was still standing room only.

The show organizer was so impressed with the crowd we had in the presentation and at our booth that he announced to all the attendees that he was going to do an Ubuntu Linux event in September.
