Submission + - How to promote a small conference (conference.hlug.ca)

HLUG writes: "My Linux user group is putting on a one day conference introducing small businesses and end users to free and open source software (presentations planned include zimbra, openoffice, asterisk and of course Linux). While I am able to put together the conference — arrange presentations, the venue, registration, etc. — I'm at a loss of how to promote it effectively. The very people I'd like to reach are a couple of degrees removed from my normal networking ties. Has anyone else done something similar or does anyone have any tips?"
It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - Apple Stores to charge entrance fee

BlackNova writes: "Apple Stores may soon start charging an entrance fee to keep out the iPhone gawkers and improve store security/safety. The $5 charged will be applicable against any purchases made — assuming you buy something. Really, they just want the 'right kind of people' coming into the store: "By 'right kind of people' I mean true Apple customers with money, willing to pay just to look at our newest wares,"says Vince Sciopiano, vice president for Apple's retail stores."
