CodeMash is looking for speakers for their 2009 conference.

What is CodeMash?

CodeMash is all about cross-domain, cross-discipline communication.

What’s this we hear about you and CodeMash?

My buddy Russ has gone to it the past two years, and he’s enjoyed it both years. I didn’t know about it the first year (as I was still out of the realms of influence then), but I missed this year’s CodeMash due to bad timing (and other lame reasons) of my own.

Some of my friends also have gone to CodeMash and constantly remind me that I missed this year’s event. So I will be at next year’s event, to see just what it is that I’ve missed.
