I'd like to, but I don't know whether I'm going to be able to.  I live in the Metro DC area and am currently unemployed.  I have few concerns about finding a new job -- I am fortunate enough to have a particular skillset that is, weirdly, both scarce and in high demand, so I get cold calls from recruiters a lot and expect to have another job soon.  However, as regards taking the time off, working the finances to travel, and so forth, I'm not sure whether I'll be able to swing it.

I hope I'll be able to.  You know, with all the other speakers and everyone who's going to be there, the person that I'm most interested in meeting is actually you.   :D

Really?  Thanks!  I hope you'll be there!  If there's going to be some WWGHA people there, we'll have to come up with some buttons or a secret handshake or something we can use to identify each other. ;)

It would be about a 5 hour drive for me, so not too bad.  I'll have to see if I can get a friend or two and some gas/hotel money together.
Here read a book.  It's free.
