> One of the really cool events happening at BARcamp this year is an

> Orbitz are putting some Erlang code into production and they have an
> open source project that they are putting out I believe.
> As with every year, we have lots of cool talks lined up and I
> expect a lot more to develop over the weekend. The Chicago LUG is
> donating a keg, like the previous years and the organizers have been
> working like crazy. Its coming together despite my being a
> disorganized slacker ;-)
> CALL FOR HELP:
> 1) RSVP in some form or fashion, (call me, email, join the list, add
