Yes, And the IDG folks want us back for NY as well .  That Expo is January 30 -
February 2, 2001, and they are finalizing thier call for papers as of 25 August.
If you would like to set up  a presentation ( I wish Doug were availible to respond
as well, Happy Vacation!), I can contact someone  at IDG  on our behalf. The online
form is short, it asks for a bio on the presenter and a two hundred word abstract,
but they really do not have a slot for education on thier list.

I think that would be vey helpful.  Aaron can give you a blow by blow on San Jose,
but I felt there was no unified thinking on what to present to the floor traffic,
so it was all off the cuff.  I was also distracted by my need to push LinuxHelpers
as we ended up with two booths that were not adjoining.  (They originally assured
me that the booths would adjoin.)

Can't be there, gotta take the kids to the waterpark for some fun this afternoon.
