Many people know what open source is. Some (fewer than we'd like) know
what free software is. Say "FLOSS" to the uninitiated, though, and
they'll think only of dental hygeine, unless you...
1. First explain open source,
2. Then explain free software,
3. And finally explain an acronym that's impenetrable
without grokking the other two things, first.
I do hope the event goes well. I also hope they lose the name scheme,
which is a serious marketing mis-step.
