>  One of the really cool events happening at BARcamp this year is an  
> Erlang workshop being given by Martin Logan and Erlang User group  
> team.  If you dont know about Erlang, its a very cool Functional  
> language thats good for distributed computing.  Martin and others at  
> 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 ;-)
> 1) RSVP in some form or fashion, (call me, email, join the list, add  
> to wiki).  Need to size catering.

> talk about technology you are using or building.
> 3) Give a talk.
> 4) Spread the word.
