Larry and personal emails, even through Gloria, can be a little slow
in coming.  I ended up getting nervous and calling Larry when I didn't
hear from him or Gloria after a few weeks.  Of course, he expects that
he'll be a speaker at YAPC... we were really just calling to confirm
that the YAPC dates were good for him.  Regardless, his number is
pretty easy to look up in the white pages, but he does discourage
calling at wall.org
