Don't think our goal is that everybody joins the XSF, but look at our
protocol and use XMPP for IM instead of other proprietary protocols and get
ideas how to use XMPP beyond IM.

At FOSDEM t-shirts are not free normally, at least I did not get any free
shirts ;-)
So we can sell them for a reasonable price and give away other stuff like
stickers and buttons for free.

Last year people were interested at presentations like Fabio did with
blogging over XMPP.
So we could think about what we can show at our booth this year upfront.
Maybe set up a micro blogging service. Or get the new jabber.org page
running for FOSDEM.
