This came through my work inbox yesterday and I thought there might be interest among readers of this blog:

Sadly, I’ve got a previous commitment that week — even if travel money was in the offing. So if anyone ends up going, I’d love a report! Shoot me an email and we could talk guest post(s) and/or link love.
