The calenders of the web sites and newsletters where I'm trying to get the
demo listed couldn't care less, and don't have the time to analyze free
software. They are however interested in free events that they can inform
their members about, events that are useful to their members, and events that
they can bring to the attention to their members, who pay dues to them for
this type of service. Once we get the demo listed on the calenders or
mentioned in direct email broadcasts from the organizations, then we can
inform about free software (and the membership can look at the website). I'm
sending three or four paragraph explanations and links for a demo, where the
calender listings only get one or two sentence mentions.
