I guess this is a case of once bitten, shy twice - I don't want to promise more
than I can deliver so including that detail was my way of managing expectations.
Glad it was helpful - given your vast experience running ApacheCon your feedback
and comments are very important to me.

:-D Not sure if I should be scared now or not - the scared little human in
myself is now afraid of the amount of people that are watching me now ;)

:) It would be awesome to have you here. While we did meet at FOSDEM earlier
this year, that was just too brief; on top of that I'm still sad I didn't even
make it to your talk.

Thank you!

Isabel (heading to the Aquarium Berlini* with family now, so offline for the
coming few hours)

* - if anyone needs more links to what to do in
Berlin with family, let me know: Happy to share links to beaches, boats, farms,
a museum with one of the first computers ever built, parks, adventure
playgrounds, places where you can be an astronaut, lakes and the like. Just in
case you need to convince other people to fly here together with you.
