Hi robert this sounds great.  Lets shape the ideas I put forward and  
we'll get it working.  The big thing is for you as a speaker to  
provide strong surveys of all the collective work that I'm looking to  
present.  It would seem with your background in the forums that you  
have a strong knowledgebase of what's been done, and what needs to be  
done.

Given you proximity to Baltimore what logistics do you need for  
attending?
