The LUG Conundrum
First up, to everyone, and I mean everyone who does anything for a LUG I thank you.
So much of what we do today would be dead in the water without your support for the past 5-10 years.
The Domino Ecosystem is very sick - we all know the reasons.
Probably the easiest way to raise cash would be to charge a minimal fee to attend - but that may not fly.
Recently I put forward an idea to my local LUG offering to donate a % of product sales if they extended offers to their LUG members. I did it a couple of times and never got an answer. I don't know why.
LUGs need healthy Sponsors. Sponsors need healthy product sales. Users like free stuff. Users need to support Sponsors. It is a bit of a conundrum.
The Ecosystem needs to be strong and it starts with IBM supplying the sunlight.
