We just announced that Mitch Kapor, founder of osafoundation, is going to speak at the CCCP benefit dinner at CodeCon. This is a great addition to our already very strong program. CodeCon pre-registration closes in a few hours, so sign up early while you still can!
I would love to pre-register. I discovered I could afford to go on Thursday, and went and bought tickets and everything. But, I don't have any way of paying you long distance in a few hours for pre-registration. I don't even have enough money moved into my PayPal account to do it that way. *sigh*
