Count me in - I was bummed that I missed the first one, and would 
have attended if it weren't for prior commitments.  This much warning 
next time around will assure I make it, and I already look forward to 
it.  I'd like to participate in any way I can.

Excellent!  This will be very nice to see (and hear)!

I can talk on the advances of Linux Audio, if that's desired.  I've 
been a Linux user since the day Linus sent his mail to the minix 
list, I've been actively participating in and watching the Linux 
audio scene since then, and as an audio developer in a professional 
capacity for the last year, here at Access, I've had an opportunity 
to contrast the Linux efforts with other commercial efforts.  Linux 
Audio has come a long way.

We don't have any Linux fronts to present, but most certainly I can 
produce a running summary of the situation from a commecial 
perspective, and if its of any interest I will happily do a "Linux 
Audio 101, Guided Tour" style development presentation for those who 
are interested in a leg-up workshop.

Since this is a German-run effort, and Access are a pro-German Audio 
industry style company, I will run it by my higher ups and see if I 
can't at least get some form of sponsorship happening.
