Personally, I would prefer if we could do it on a Friday. The idea you 
have and the opportunity to show off stuff like Ubuntu EC would be 
something we would be happy to be involved with and would probably want 
to invite some businesses to come along and see it in action.

Keep the dialogue here as it is something we'd be keen to help with but 
for us really would want to after Oggcamp not during...
