If you were on the fence about attending, this might help.  Marsee
from O'Reilly saw that we were talking about CouchDB and offered five
access codes to the rough cut of their upcoming CouchDB book
(http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596158163/index.html).  We'll be
giving those away at the meeting... you have to be present to win :)

Thanks Marsee!
