You can't convince a man about that which he is not incented to believe.  
This probably isn't the droid you were looking for.

Subject: Barriers to awareness   
 I just thought I'd share a conversation I've had with the organisers of  
Cloud World Forum.
 As I'm down to attend, the guy rings asking about Pointgreen and if we 
want to exhibit/sponsor the show. I politely decline, but then ask would 
the show not benefit from say a 'Cloudstack' presentation, to which the 
response is 'they'll have to pay'.
 I'd explain this is Apache Open Source community offering, but the guy 
wont budge, rules are rules, even though the benefit to the audience could 
be significant.
 Question is, how do you educate folks, especially in the Enterprise 
market, if forums like this are closed due to cost?
