  Ah, but there are more trinkets/m^2 at Uniforum than at usenix (and
even more at the usenix IBM hospitality suite :).

  How come everyone "gives" away T-shirts ("gives" because you often
have to listen to a speech about a product that GNU has had a better
version of for years) but no shorts, jeans, overcoats or sneakers.  I
have a million free T-shirts, but never have I been given a pair of
sneakers.  (insert indignant snort)
