LinuxWorld Expo comes to Boston

So there's no simple meetings and events attendance count of warm bodies 
that gets posted to the website consistently over time?
'could have a page that display recent counts and graphs attendance like 
a stock price chart with various views of time periods, etc.

I guess "companies involved with Linux-based products" means experts. 
But it seems to me that you more likely to find sales people at 
LinuxWorld. I suppose sales people are perfect for growing an 
organization.  ['more vague thought on this than I can put to words for 
now. Later, :)]
