IBM has some great demos of their latest stuff which they basically only show
to existing customers.  It should not take much to have variants of those
shows aimed at a wider computing audience.

Also consider a quarterly event in major metropolises, co-sponsored by local
400 user group & some of the IBM BPs ... you get in van / bus whatever & go
for a tour of some place that has a 400 installed ... you find out what they
use it for & how happy they are & the kinds of problems they have ... for
each place there is a basic fact sheet with configuration info, application
list, users count, speed of access (e.g. no noticeable wait for access to
anything), never have to reboot, how much disk space, annual budget to run
this stuff, major applications, type of industry.  Visit one place in
morning, another in afternoon, or do this intermittently - each place can
handle only so many visitors & only on the day of week that is their least

Why would a place allow such a mob to come through.
Well some group rate on 400 user group membership & perhaps some of our
challenges cured a bit faster. (Alister Wm Macintyre) (Al Mac)
