ApacheCon Presentation

Well, last night I finished up writing the written part of the presentation. Today I need to format the document in RTF or HTML so that the conference people can publish the document as part of their conference proceedings. The document I wrote is 17 pages long and over 6000 words. It will probably end up being 20 - 25 pages after I reformat it to fit on pages correctly, etc.

I was able to get Camelot to pay for 4 nights of hotel because of the whole plane ticket fiasco. The guy who I talk to about this tried to tell me how much more generous they are because most other conference don't pay for their speaker's flight or hotel, etc. Then he named two conferences as an example and I hadn't heard of either one of them (JavaOne and SD West/East). I think that it's only fair that speakers get benifits like this since there is not only time spent presenting the material at the conference, but a whole lot of time (every night for the past few weeks) spent preparing the material.
