Hi everyone

Thanks for all the support and comments so far. Lots to take on board, but
the main thrust seems to be that there is certainly interest. The challenge
will be fitting the content to one day in a meaningful way - my brain is
refusing to entertain the idea of a two day event at the moment!

If there are others out there with ideas or comments about the format and
content they want to see then please continue to post in this thread, but
in the meantime I'll start to formulate some concrete plans.
