Anyone know anything about these folks:

I was just searching for Linux speakers in Denver and they came up. It 
looks like they're Open Source people and have given presentations before.

Is part of the problem the relatively small number of people that 
attend? You can certainly make an argument for the circularity of things 
- not many people attend, so hard to get speakers/overuse the regulars, 
but without doing new things new people don't want to attend, ...

Not that I have any real thoughts on how to change this, but I thought 
I'd bring it up for discussion.

Another thing I'll note - we arent' necessarily the only group with 
these sorts of issues. Since we plan on moving there in a few years I've 
subscribed to the Alaska Linux group. Recently they were discussing the 
upcoming year - here's the relevant post:
