I would love to go. By then I'll be in Edinburgh, working for EDINA.
I've not met Stuart Macdonald and don't know how viable it would be
for me to be there in an OKF capacity doing a lightning talk/panel?
I can sound out the EDINA folks about it.
Also happy to offer spare room to anyone who'll be in Edinburgh.
