If you think that SC Ruby Con would be worth attending you might want
to contact the organizers again and explain that Fedora Project is a
community project and does not necessarily have large amounts of money
to pay for a booth and ask if they can work with you on that.
Sometimes throwing in that you can get them some "free" publicity
through being listed on the Fedora Events page, blog postings before
and after the event and such organizers will give you a booth for free
at a con.  We have had success with this in the past at getting a
booth at a con we would have otherwise been unable to attend due to
the cost of booth space.
