What, you want us to ASK them? ;-)
Seriously though - I'd just go in, open the books and pop in the
cards. If you ask someone they'll get their manager, the manager will
wonder whether it's going to cost him his job and/or next raise if he
lets people do this, he'll defer to the regional manager who will
suggest that, rather than doing something simple and effective like
this we should instead have a "Community Programming Night" at the
bookstore where we can all gather around and spend money on their
outrageously expensive coffee and have idiots who want to learn about
Java and C# come bug us to join their WoW guilds, and in the end
nothing will get done.
Although, honestly, having one of those Barnes and Noble discussion
group deals (they have them for chess, Russian literature, Harry
Potter, etc. etc.) might not be a bad idea either.
