My comments don't refer to LinuxTag, but I think this problem is one
common to many events.

The problem is that you are there to represent Debian, and you are
doing a very poor job of that if your nose is buried in a laptop
reading email or hacking.

All it takes to realize this is to watch people come by a booth, start
to say something, note the concentration on the laptoppers face, and
move on.
