How many slots of the keynotes are there and how many to be filled?
I will follow up with Lessig to update him about AJS/WSFII and connect the
dots further. He could be also interested in attending the Summit.

I think we might be crowding the field a little.
We've just received word that Prof. Eric Brewer of Berkeley is most
likely to attend. For those of you not familiar with his work you can
check out his web page - http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~brewer/
WRT to Lessig, I think it was a good idea but a little too late.
We've only got so many keynote slots and I don't want to turn around
and tell anyone that they're being bumped for someone "more famous".
I know that's not in anyone's thinking, but it's basically the
position I'd be put in.
