hardware options sounds good. 

The pods would be better attended if it were in a room/booth in the main hall instead of being stuck in the far corner of the other building.

Does anyone know other volunteer that are willing to come, do the pods and then others that would come, learn what to do and help with the pods throughout Saturday? 

The time goes pretty fast but it's nice to be able to take a walk.

i also have 5+ olpcs that can be used to introduce them to the sugar environment with an option for them to sugarize there own computer.

if people have thumbdrives we can teach them how to make them bootable with an iso also they will know where and how to get the iso off of the internet.
i'm considering the amount of time each person plans to stay at each pod. I plan to ask at least four (4) questions:

1. What do you know about Linux? ______________________________
2. What do you want to do with Linux? _________________________
3. Have you ever installed Linux?  Y / N 
  a. If so which distro did you use._______________
4. How much time do you have or want to spend on this pod?
  a. 5-10 min.         _______
  b. 10-15 min.        _______
  c. more than 15 min. _______

Great.  Regarding the laptops -- I think the LA Makerspace are meant to
connect to the Internet and are used for Scratch and MInecraft
programming.  I don't know the specs and don't know if you can install
Linux -on- them.

A/V might have shuttle computers we can co-opt with monitors and
keyboard/mice from Tech.  I will have to ask.

I have an old Dell laptop and an eeePC that you are welcome to install
Linux on.  I can ask my LUG if anyone can lend us computers to install
Linux on.
