I'm in, I did this the past two years and I had a really good time.
It's nice to finally match faces with some of the names from IRC, any
of the mailing lists, so there's an aspect of 'star watching'. There's
also all the interesting conversation that happens when people start
to huddle around the booth, I know last year some of the best
conversations I had were with business folks that came over and would
start to grill me about why anyone would use perl over Rails, after
about 3 minutes of us talking about the good parts of the perl
community and CPAN it would usally turn in to both of us bashing some
aspect of Rails, so theres also the ability to talk about something
that you love. Everyone that I've ever encountered at the booth is
very open and nice to talk so it's an all around good time in my book.

Ohh and you also get the inside scoop on where the good parties are.
If there are any questions that any one has feel free to ask away.
