Yeah, I'd strongly consider going if we could get a group of people 
together.  I'd be ok giving an informal talk in our dev room (assuming 
we get one), but I don't know that I'd want to do anything larger.  But 
this all depends on my schedule in February (which I won't know for a 
while), as well as cost...
