Doesn't look like there are too many hands to count. And I'm not so
surprised. I see the decline in W2L activities (instaparties in
particular) as a natural response to Linux becoming a mainstream issue.
It's not a secret thing anymore, but rather something any serious CS
student is "welcomed to" during his or her studies.
What we need, is to catch those who have tried Linux, liked it, and have
no idea that there is some activity in the Technion. I've said this
before, and I say it again: We need simple and recurrent advertising.
We need a constant slot on the Technion's billboards, electronic or
non-electronic. Maybe we could put an invitation as a wallpaper of the
Linux computers in the CS farm? In particular, the one which appears
before logging in? My hunch is that all we need to do is to ask.
So, will anybody who studies in the Technion volunteer to spare some
minutes to talk with whoever has the authority to advertise a message
saying "Liked Linux? www.haifux.org" or something like that? Someone?
(And I didn't mention Haifa University, because that could be taken as a
personal hint ;)
