Hey Richard,

Great idea, and I'd be there. Unfortunately this time I'll be in Montreal
as part of the 2nd stop on the LocationTech tour<http://tour.locationtech.org/>

For what it's worth for those that are interested, the Ottawa tour event is
just 2 days earlier on Nov. 4th. Folks are very welcome to that... the beer
is on me. It'll be a lot of fun.
