Here's some signal (let's add a header X-Signal-Or-Noise:  SIGNAL :) **) from 
Josette at O'Reilly regarding OSCON -- can any of our members convince their 
employers to fork out a thousand euros for a weekend in Amsterdam? (no, the 
dope is extra!)

(** sorry to nottpm members who aren't in the NLUG list - there's some issue 
about Signal-to-Noise Ratio. Sorry to nottpm members who ARE on the NLUG list 
- you will have got this twice. To NLUG members who AREN'T on the nottpm list 
- you aren't missing much because the signal approaches zero and SNR 
calculator causes divide-by-zero error :) )

At long last, OSCON is coming to Europe. It's a new adventure for O'Reilly
 Media, and we hope you'll join us in making O'Reilly European Open Source
 Convention, aka EuroOSCON, one of the most informative and inspiring
 "gathering of the tribes" on the Continent.

What can you expect from EuroOSCON? As our fearless program chair Nat
 Torkington puts it, "We have a whole track for business, covering developing
 nations, business models, and the future of open source in Europe. Java,
 Linux, and Emerging Topics are huge.  We'll have an Asterisk tutorial and a
 strong Python track. From web technology like AJAX, Ruby on Rails, and Plone
  to server technology like MySQL and Apache, we've sought out the most
 essential open source technology. We're celebrating the best speakers and
 unique needs of Europe as well as bringing over top American open source

We're still fine-tuning the progrom, but some of the current EuroOSCON
 speakers and topics highlights include:

- Keynote presentations: David Heinemeier-Hansson, Cory Doctorow, Tim
 O'Reilly, Nathan Torkington, Rael Dornfest, Marc Hedlund - Business: Doug
 Levin, Donald Rosenberg, Danese Cooper
- Linux: Alan Cox, Luis Casas Luengo, Greg Stein, Frederic Descamp, Erwin
 Tenhumberg - Java: Brian Sam-Bodden, Erik Hatcher
- PHP: Rasmus Lerdorf, Sebastian Bergmann, Daniel Guermeur
- Python: Alex Martelli, Joel Burton, Martijn Faassen
- Perl: Larry Wall, Damian Conway, Abigail, Leon Brocard, Autrijus Tang
- Databases: David Axmark, Theo Schlossnagle, Jutta Horstmann
- Security: Ben Laurie, Marty Pauley, John Viega
- Emerging Topics (Ruby on Rails, AJAX, Subversion): Kathy Sierra, Paul
 Everitt, Martin King-Turner

We invite you to gather with leaders, programmers, innovators, and users of
 every open source persuasion at the premiere of EuroOSCON. EuroOSCON is a
 place where you can hone your skills, learn about the newest features and
 versions, hear about open source trends and innovations from creators and
 experts, make new professional and personal connections--and best of all,
 have fun doing it. ***Important Deadlines***
