Someone from Apple (Jordan Hubbard?) talking about
	- the use of OSS technology in MacOS X
	- innovative new features in MacOS X
I'd also like to get a photo of Jordan Hubbard standing next to  
Gordon Hubbard :)

I would also appreciate hearing Joel Spolsky of "Joel on Software"  
fame.  See http://www.joelonsoftware.com/items/2007/01/26.html for a  
recent post talking about his company's use of OSS + proprietary  
software in an cross-platform product they produce. Joel would be  
both provocative and entertaining, and would bring another  
perspective into the production of commercial software (both  
technical and non-technical issues).

Perhaps someone talking about the new ZFS file system and the  
implications for cross-paltform software development and deployment.  
Either someone from Sun or perhaps one of the FUSE people (lots of  
interesting stuff on the MacFuse page at http://code.google.com/p/ 
macfuse/ )

Someone from the L4 group at UNSW or from one of the companies that  
uses it (Qualcomm?) talking about the L4 Microkernel (we tried to get  
someone last year but it didn't work out). - http://l4hq.org/
