SpaceUp unconference in San Diego on Saturday

This weekend is SpaceUp unconference in San Diego, and I'll be attending on Saturday. I've never been to an unconference before, so I'm very curious to see how it all works! You can still register if you want to attend, but if you can't, some part of the unconference will be webcast on Spacevidcast. As per the unconference format, there is no set agenda yet, except for Saturday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Pacifc, when there will be a series of T minus 5 talks. These are talks in which the hapless presenter is allowed 20 slides which rotate automatically every 15 seconds, described as "more like karaoke than giving a presentation," and I have foolishly agreed to give the first one. Wish me luck, and watch how I fare via the webcast! Or watch the #SpaceUp #SD hashtags on Twitter. And learn more about unconferences and SpaceUp in particular on last week's Planetary Radio interview of Chris Radcliff and Marimikel Charrier.
