That's a possibility, but whether it can be done depends on what 
resources we want to spend on it. So far, Alex has wanted to increase 
member signups, but I'm not sure if that's what he thinks the main job 
of the stand is. Adam and Kirsty have sat on the fence, and I think 
that's everyone who posted so far.
At the moment, I think the main job should be distributing information 
and the stand should also make special effort to sign up members. If 
there is any time spare, establishing new contacts, seeking press 
coverage and researching trends would be good standbys. I think enough 
feedback will happen without seeking it, based on past experience. 
AFFS doesn't particularly need to sell stuff yet and probably many 
people at the fair will be doing that, so not doing it could 
differentiate us. Similarly demonstrating. I can't think of what AFFS 
wants, so I can't suggest types of deal to search for.
I am open to persuasion, but that's my current view.

I'm not very keen on using that #affs IRC at random any more, but if 
there's a proper meeting there, I'll do my best to attend and
