Re: [vox-outreach] GTC: 60 word, Booth Description Needed

I'd like to see minimizing the information on about "who we are" and more
on "why come to our booth."  A sentence or two like this:

   LUGOD promotes professional-quality free software
   that can enhance various businesses and organizations.
   Please come to our booth to find out how your
   business or organization can benefit from this
   exciting new movement that's sweeping the nation!

(It's technically not a new movement, but [nbc]if they haven't seen it,
it's new to them![/nbc] ^.^;)

And we don't have to use up all 60 words just because we *can* have 60
words.  People don't like to read and fewer words are more likely to grab
people's attention than more words (I would think!)

And use "lugod.org" instead of "www.lugod.org" to save a word, just in
case "www.lugod.org" counts as three... ;)
