This may sound a little stupid, but perhaps over the months we can get 
EVERYONE to talk.

Basically, I was thinking that anyone who wants to, or can be cajoled by 
friends or the person sitting next to them, could get up and give a brief 
talk on what they do in the Linux/computing field. I think this might 
generate more interest in the meetings ... besides, you get to know more 
people and they may be in a field that you are interested in. You can always 
introduce yourself to them and talk with them later over pizza. 

It doesn't matter if a person's talk is for 5 minutes or 20 minutes.
I don't suggest we commit the whole meeting to it, but over the next few 
months we get four or five people (or more) to talk each night ... besides 
it's an excellent form of "Networking". Fortunately CLUG is still small 
enough to do this.
