I don't think there is much incentive to buy yet another USB thumb
drive. What about a pre-loading station where people can choose what
install media they want and then have them copied to their drives
automagically? I don't if Debian has something similar to grml's
grml2usb with support for parallel images or this could be adapted for
debian's needs, though.
I do agree that CDs and DVDs are becoming less and less needed over
time as most people who will be at Fosdem will have access to a fast
internet connection in some way. That being said, keeping a few CDs
around can't hurt.
