Regretfully I must cancel my trip to Seattle, a bummer on several levels as I always love code4lib conferences, the people, the topics, and was also looking forward to enjoying downtown Seattle a bit too. Last minute urgent business duties call, alas. I have alerted the code4libcon e-mail list as well.
This means I won't be at the "What's New in Solr" pre-conference event that I was going to lead. However, I will make myself available to call/Skype/IRC in and do a bit of facilitation and contribute what I can to the get-together. I think it will be a useful/productive time slot for folks to discuss Solr experiences, challenges, and future needs, so please don't worry about me not being physically there, and take the opportunity to make it an interactive session where everyone introduces themselves and their projects and delves into the gory details of Solr experiences.
I'm open to suggestions on how I can best participate remotely and contribute as best I can.
