[Bf-committers] Speakers pool

   I would be more than happy to speak at one of the conferences.  I would have
to figure out when I'm available, and I wouldn't be able to pay for much of it
myself (so it would have to be one where traveling and hotel expenses are paid
for me).
   Also, language-barrier might be an issue.  I only speak english, so the
conference would have to allow for that.  Obviously, I would make an effort to
learn as much of the area's language as I could, but that wouldn't be enough to
give a talk.

   So, in short, I am more than happy to give a talk at any of those events,
but there are several limitations that could get in the way.
