Excellent, I'll be there.

I also agree about BOSC - the amount of co-operatoin between the Bio*
projects was astounding!  Which - coupled with the example of Jason's
cross-posting - brings me to the point:

Shouldn't there be a general mailing list (moderated?) to cover issues that
pertain to all the Bio* projects?  ("biostar"? "openbio"?)  This could cover:
- announcements of interest to all, like Jason's
- co-operation / code sharing between projects
- etc.

(Maybe the bioinformatics.org people can be prevailed upon to host it, since
they have such a nice domain? :-)
