OK, it's time to start getting an idea of who will be there and who will be square. Please respond to the Poll on this thread and let us know if you plan to join our second TONMO.com convention (TONMOCON II) at MOTE in Sarasota, Florida, on June 23rd / 24th, 2007. Agenda and details to follow, but for an idea of what TONMOCON I was like, [url2=http://www.tonmo.com/tonmocon/tonmocon.php]click here[/url2].

Obviously, I'll definitely be there. I think I have to give a presentation or something. Probably on cephalopods in art and mythology. Who else is up? I've heard a few yeas, few nays so far...

I certainly have every intention of attending. I look forward to meeting other Tonmoers in person, not just via the internet.

Well, since I'll be at MOTE at that time anyway, it's inevitable that I'll at least see you guys. I do plan to attend, though!

I've been waiting years now to buy a house as the market in California has been over-inflated for years now. Now that the market is giving a little I think my wife and I might try to get our first home. That means that all my fun money spending is put on hold until we decide on whats happening. Either way, if I have money freed up, I'll be there, but if we decide to get a house it will probably be Tonmocon III that I finally make it to.

I'm probably not coming this year. Unless I win a few thousand bucks off the lottery or something.

Richard, we'd be quite happy if you gave another presentation. Your last one was fantastic.

In contemplating all the cool things Thales might talk about, and the ones he did talk about last time, it occurs to me that something that might work in some way would be to have some sessions more oriented to "round table discussions" or "panel discussions" rather than the "one person lectures" format. Of course, some of that is because I might be more comfortable moderating a discussion than giving a lecture myself-- I certainly don't mean to suggest that I had any problems with any of the lectures last time around, just that it might be fun to mix in some back-and-forth discussions...

Slight change of plans, due to a very short summer break, Grade/Year 11 Exams that will take place until the end of July. I will not be attending TONMOcon, unless a sudden outbreak of anthrax or bird flu breaks out in Hong Kong.

Last month the answer was a definite yes and we had started making plans. Unfortunately our "hotel" will be closed that week as my sister in Tampa will be in St Maartin. She and spouse have invited us to go along if we can find cheap flights so now it is up to Delta/Spirit to make the decision. Needless to say we can't commit either way until the last minute.
