Here's my annual request for suggestions of people who could keynote at 
VCF East.

- The person must have general appeal to our audience. It can't be 
someone who did something very narrow.

- Nobody should reach out to speakers on VCF's behalf: just looking for 
suggestions right now; official communication must come from VCF officers.

- We're looking for people who personally did awesome things -- not 
someone who worked in sales/marketing, and not someone who is a 
modern-day author/historian (like me!) about what other people did. 
(Exceptions can be made, but generally we're looking for the 
first-person angle.)

- They don't have to be a celebrity, but they must have a resume that is 

- We want new people: we've done the usual suspects too much.

- Obviously we prefer people who live within a couple of hundred miles 
of InfoAge.

- It would be great to have women or people of color!
