Man, I wish I could get there.  Maybe I can talk my boss into it, as  
an R&D effort (I'm in the Salt Lake City area, myself).

I'm currently incubating an idea for a massively-multiplayer game/ 
company.   As I've evaluated technologies, I'm convinced that Erlang  
is my platform; now it is a matter of getting enough of the idea put  
together (both in code and in business plan) to attract some funding.

Of course, that means I have to learn, learn, and learn some more. :)

You should read my blog; it is more interesting than my signature.
