I really hope that Centro's office can work out because they have a
great venue and are great supporters of the open source community.

I don't think it should be viewed as a waste of keystrokes.  I hope
there is still some interest from people and I will still help get
people to show up even if I won't be there.  As far as I know the
SCALE conflict only impacts myself and maybe Rich.  Cezar will be
around but not all weekend as an upstream contact for Django.  I will
talk to Gabriel about Banshee and see if he is available.

I plan to work on some bug jam stuff in the evenings and during
conference downtime.  I think SCALE is even planning some event to
coordinate with the Ubuntu Global Bug Jam.

I agree if we can get everything organized and setup before hand we
should still be in good shape.
