How about a combined shared LUGs booth/table?

Many LUGs may not have enough resource to staff a booth/table for the whole
event by themselves, but many/most can cover at least some hours, and
likely also provide some materials (e.g. flyers/handouts).

This worked fairly well last year.  Would someone (perhaps from SF-LUG?)
want to take lead on obtaining/coordinating such a booth?

Also, looks like Debian may not have a booth this year (LinuxWorld
conflicts with Deb Camp - so most of the otherwise available DDs will
be at Deb Camp and not LinuxWorld) ... but BAD would likely also be
interested in some BAD/Debian representation at LinuxWorld too.
