While I'm flattered to be mentioned in this discussion, I'm nowhere near on the same level as Quinn. She's a legend.
I would be comfortable doing something on Friday, and a homebrew panel of some sort sounds like a ton of fun. Now that I've had some practice with the crowd speaking at DEFCON and VCFMW last year, it sounds like something within my wheelhouse.
However, back to the subject at hand of keynotes on Saturday & Sunday. I agree that we should not be to hasty in dismissing anyone at this juncture without a very good reason.

P.S. Thank you Bob, that's very kind of you. On Monday, January 7, 2019, 8:25:35 PM EST, Evan Koblentz via vcf-midatlantic <vcf-midatlantic at lists.vcfed.org> wrote:

Several of us Apple II fans know her. She's indeed awesome, and maybe we
can get her to VCF West this summer.
Here on the east coast, we've got Alexander "Z" Pierson and his Cactus
6502 computer. He won our top prize at VCF East last year.
