Good idea.  Coming up.

Yep, that's what I'm trying to get happening.  And while we can run a 
conference without international speakers, I think they're one of the 
cornerstones of a really good event, hence my solicitation.

If anyone has a burning desire to bring out someone in particular, I want 
to know about it.  I think it's important to give the members what they 
want, rather than just what I think is good.

We have solidifying ideas about venue and date but nothing I'd want to put 
on the web site right now.  Many of these details are inter-related, but I 
hope to have it sorted out this week.

No negativity taken.  We have an opportunity to rectify that with a 
seriously good conference and I'm seizing it.
