Sure. Ed certainly has a compelling story. But we aim for mainstream
appeal in a VCF keynote.
I feel compelled to also mention that it would be fantastic to have
women and minorities as speakers. Ruth Lewart gave a great VCF East talk
and so did Jeri Ellsworth. More would be awesome -- for I'd like to get
Margaret Hamilton, but I don't know if Mark Dean would travel from
Keep in mind that the speakers participate on their own dime (pretty
much -- we've covered a hotel room here and there.)
