  It is quite useful in conversations.  It is part of the "You have
been using and depending on FLOSS for years, just without realizing
it".  I also talk about how Google, Amazon, Facebook, Twitter and
other such companies are all built on top of FLOSS.

  But having them notice their own or their parties direct usage is ideal.

  They'll never notice on their own -- it is all just part of getting
your foot in the door and opening their ears to what you have to say.
 You have to be willing to have those face-to-face meetings for it to
matter.
