Great news on the location...I'm with you on the strike out verbiage.  Right now it looks like we have 3 topics as one note was sent directly to me. 
I'll send out more info in the AM.

The conference Craig is referring to is the old SB Pizza Conference.
The SB's admins have given me the nod to host the Pizza Conference on
May 22nd... w00t! 

As Craig said, we're looking for topics and presentations and please
send your ideas to  Vince Gonillo - [log in to unmask] who so foolishly
bravely volunteered to collect the information and bring it to the next
pizza meeting so we can set a schedule.   I'd like to do a session on
MythTV and VLC if there is any interest. 

How about we do T-Shirts this year, every attendee gets a conference

 Get those ideas to Vince!

Craig, I think it's a wonderful idea to hold a conference for "techies",
similar to those S.Burlington held in past years.  I have 2 or 3 guys
that could really benefit from any/all of the topics you listed.  There
is another theme, not really a specific topic, that continues to emerge
in our schools, and that has to do with access vs. security.  Is too
much blocked or not enough?  Are things secure or too inaccessible?
There seems to be 2 avenues around this: lock it down (seems to be our
techies point of view) until they come crying, or leave it open until
something bad happens then patch it.  The more we talk about things like
mobile-personal device making access ubiquitous the more we need to
include in this discussion those who are supporting the infrastructure.
It would be a tremendous opportunity for support folks to be included in
this discussion at a tech conference.
