[Ambassadors] idea for *every* event

Here is a proposal for two activities that we should have at every 
event.  In particular, I'd like to see us do it at FOSDEM, FISL, and 

(1) A "join Fedora" station.  Somewhere at the booth, there is a 
computer or laptop with a sign on it that says "come here to join the 
Fedora Project" or something like that.  There is one person whose job 
is to talk to folks, get them interested in Fedora, and help them to go 
through the CLA and WikiEditing process.  The success metric is simple:
    * Did the person leave having set up their Fedora Wiki homepage?
    * Did the person become a Fedora Ambassador?
    * Does the person have some idea of what they might like to 
contribute to Fedora?
    * How many accounts were created at the event?

(2) A "bring us your USB key, and we'll turn it into a Fedora LiveUSB 
key for you" station.  Same idea as above.  We have a computer that has 
several Fedora Spins on it.  People bring their USB key, and we run the 
livecd-iso-to-disk tool and set their USB keys up as Fedora LiveUSB 
keys.  Again, the metric is simple:
    * How many were created at the event?

Thoughts or comments?
