If you have any contacts worth trying, it would be great if you gave it 
a shot.

Thanks,

So, does that mean that you're pledging to pledge? ;)

I'm a backer now, with Facebook and Amazon accounts it was real 
quick and simple.

My evil plan is the fact of organizing this conference will bring 
more people's attention to the language, more adopters and 
developers, so the implementation will get better and better 
faster.

Looking at the graph and excluding the super-villains (who are they?) 
the current pool seems close to empty.
There will probably be an end spurt if the goals seems in sight, but as 
it stand I don't see this happening.

My reason for not having pledged:
Too expensive: flight + ticket.
I will pledge 100$ if that would mean videos.

We currently have one generous $5K contribution from Andrew Edwards (an 
enlisted US Marine) and another one from Sociomantic.com. Since Andrew 
is not competing for branding or recruiting, we're considering offering 
one extra Kryptonite slot should we receive requests.

Excluding the large contributions is actually not indicative because 
most conferences actually finance via sponsorships.

The way I see it, we have 16 firm early bird attendees, and we're six 
corporate sponsorships away from reaching our goal. We must make this 
happen.

One thing we could all do is to mention the conference to our recruiting 
managers. This is a golden opportunity to recruit straight in the Bay 
Area. A contribution as simple as offering a conference room for three 
days would mean huge goodwill in the D community for next to no cost to 
the company.

Understood. Note that if you submit a talk proposal, it's possible (no 
promise though at this point) we'd be able to defray transportation costs.

I should hope that it would be video'd - :o)

I second that. Many of us won't be able to attend to the
conference due to travel costs and it would be nice if there are
videos.
