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.
