I'll be at IFTF at 12:30 on Wednesday, with the name stickers and
Sharpies (DIYBioers will have to DIYNameTag)
Also, I'm vegetarian, and I'm pretty much offline until then
(occasionally checking e-mail)

This is Razib Khan. Turns out I can only make it to the 6th. Should I
cancel, or can I come to one day and free up a slot for someone on the
7th?

Best

So we have Sarah Kummerfeld and Razib Khan visiting only on Wednesday, that means that the next 2 people on the waiting list
  1. Silvia Santos (Ferrel lab)
  2. Gerry Cagney http://proteomics.ucd.ie/members.html
can be there on Thursday, whole day, which is the main programme of BBCamp.

Honestly I feel kinda weird about the step-by-step waiting list manoeuvres as BBCamp is not an Apple Store where people waiting for the next generation video-out and RFID-enabled iPhones but just an exciting unconference with a serious capacity restriction. I do hope that all the current 5 waiting list people can visit.

We still have at least 8 unavailable people, please help reach them to confirm their attendance May Wang, Peter Binfield, Bess Ho, Rod Falcon, Kristi Miller, Joe Kaufman, Michelle Cadieux

Hopefully, someone on the waiting list can fill my spot and have a
great time.

I'll be attending both days, but only dinner on the 7th.

I'm organizing dinner arrangements however, so please do RSVP with
your dinner attendance on the 6th AND 7th. Some of these places need
an exact head count by Monday or Tuesday and some will charge us by 10-
person table regardless of whether we fill up the table.

Thanks,
Shirley Wu

I put you on the waiting list Newton as we have a serious capacity restriction at IFTF (75 people), so we have to wait till somebody else steps back.

Practically we are full and I wanted to close down the list completely (no more waiting list), but still want to wait 1 more day with that, so maybe there will be 1-2 more slots on Thursday. Wednesday is full.
