CSCLUG Linux Demo Day

Today's CSCLUG Linux Demo Day turned out to be a pretty good event, and a resounding success by my standards. I'd say we had somewhere around 50-60 people stop by today. Most came by for the event, a few came in just to get coffee so we explained to them what was going on. There were even a few that said they were interested in learning more about Linux but didn't have anybody to guide them, which was precisely the audience we were looking for.

There were some very interesting demonstrations going on, including a couple of OLPC-XO units that could do interesting things like function as an oscilloscope and even acoustic distance measurements. Zenko showed off Linux gaming on a laptop and used his eeePC to remote control a Roomba. There was also lots of fun being had with Blobber.
