      I'm currently negotiating with the domestic scheduling bureau.  I'd say it's looking favorable, about 70 percent
      chance of attendance.

      Okay, Bill confirmed, but Jim can't make it.  So obviously we need more people than just Bill and I.
       
      Who else will help out?  Please reply soon and help me de-stress.

      Sorry if this query is redundant ... who can confirm participation in our HOPE exhibit on Saturday, July 22, in NYC?
       
      So far it's me, Jim Scheef, (Bill Degnan?), and [your names here].......?
       
      We'll have an approx. 10x10 ft. space, open on one end.  The exhibits should be more like Trenton in '04 than VCF East in '05 -- very simple.

      That is one of the things I'm waiting to hear about.

      Evan,
       
      How many passes are they giving us?

      I just spoke with the guy who's our middleman to the HOPE people (Sam Nitzberg, who is running the panel on which Sellam is speaking.)  He said we're getting everything we asked for, which is a minimum of 10x10 sq. ft. of space, with tables on three of the four sides, so people can walk into the middle, along with basic electrical power.  We're also getting comp passes.  I'll feel more comfortable when I see this information directly from HOPE in writing (should arrive this weekend), but I have no reason to doubt it.  Early next week we'll sort out the details about travel and stuff.
       
      As Jim noted, they posted the full conference schedule.  That's at http://www.hopenumbersix.net/speakers.html#Grid ... remember, the more people we have to man our booth, the more we can take turns attending the lectures.

      Evan,

      The HOPE website has been updated with the speaker schedule and a few other details. Unfortunately it can best be called a work in progress with instructions to fill in the press registration form - but no form, and similar anomolies. I'm hopefull (no pun) about coming in on the train for a day. The interesting talks are spread out between Friday and Saturday with most at nite. I would like to write an article on the event for my computer club's newsletter (www.dacs.org).

      Jim

      Sadly, there isn't an update yet. The organizers have not yet replied to my
      most recent urgent questions.

      I will bug the heck out of them this week.
