Just to put a good word about low the overhead is at the MIT flea.
Assign parking spaces, hand out tickets and watch the gate.
At least it's not so much work as to burn out one or more members
of the MARCH board. I'm hinting that a MARCH/infoAge swap-meet
could be a real easy thing to do. Never asked Steve Finberg how he does
his, however. There's probably a need for a permit from the town at least.
- Easy to do... Yes... That's why I strongly support us doing it!
But not with parking spaces. We should do this indoors in case of bad weather.
