Get the word out. Here are some ideas:
1. Print up some propaganda - say half-page sized - head over to
Powells Tech, and insert them in all of the Perl books you can find.
I'm sure we could even get the blessing of the establishment to do it.
2. Print up more propaganda. Drop off inch thick stacks at other
local UGs (Linux, Linux/UNIX, and Mac all come to mind). Make sure
you speak with the organizer so they take the stack home with them
between meetings. Also, offer to stock flyers for their UGs; they'll
appreciate the gesture.
3. Print up yet more propaganda. Leave it around the local wifi
For the propaganda, put a tickle-me note in close to the bottom that
says, "whoops, we're almost out! Please email mumble at mumble.com to
restock me! Mention the location, too"
