Hmmm, $10 to register, $400 for an EeePC, do you think that 39 extra 
people who aren't able to come registering using your name would tip
the balance in your favour.

Definitely, your talk sounds fantastic.

I don't know if everyone has seen the new Ubuntu-UK podcast.


It includes an interview with Becky Hogge of the Open Rights Group,
who sounds really knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and is part of
an organisation doing great work.

Is it just me, or have their been several women stepping (or
perhaps being pushed) in to the spotlight over the last couple
of weeks?

Also, I've been doing some bug triage recently, and have noticed
a number of typically female names cropping up. Are there a large
number of women contributing in these sorts of ways but staying
away from the mailing lists etc. that I am more familiar with?
The number is still less than 5-10% unfortunately, but I find
it is much more close to zero in other places.
