Yes -- I'll be there.  In fact, I seem to have been roped into being on the 
program[me] committee.  So if anyone here is interested in giving a talk on 
something FreeBSD-related, such as deploying FreeBSD in a product, developing 
on/with FreeBSD, advocating/documenting/... FreeBSD, it would be most welcome! 

Conference information is available here:


And, of course, the social event is a field trip to legoland...
