Is anyone going to be at OSCON and looking for a booth to stand in
and look cool? We've got room for more volunteers for the memcached
booth for the elite (read: willing) among you.

If you're going to be in Portland July 21st and/or 22nd and would be
willing to help out at all, please let me know (preferably off-list so
we don't annoy everyone).

Copying the list for all to enjoy - what exactly would hanging out in
the booth entail? Answering questions? Giving out papers? Talking
smack about other cache daemons? Sitting in a dunk tank? ..

Dang. Someone let loose the dunk tank plans. I guess we'll have to
cancel it now to get participants.

Having done booth duty, it generally consists of saying "you're welcome"
to people who come by and say thanks for memcached and say how cool it
is, explaining what it is to those who have heard of it, but never used it
or explaining what it is to those who have lived under a rock for the
last 7 years and haven't heard of it.

It should be fun. I think we'll still have some of the floppy disks
from OSCON 2009. They're a good conversation starter, even though the
logo has been superseded.

Last OSCON, I had to explain to a guy who won a netbook that
installing memcached on it wouldn't make it faster. All kind of
excitement goes on.

There are a lot of knowledgeable people who show up as well, and
this is where we started to hear about some of the terrible
performance of clients.
