	Okay, here is a potential for us to do something in Austin at ConSec (it's an ISSA event).  For $1000 we can have an entire track just for OWASP.  We can either draw on local speakers, or fly some in or both.  Thoughts?

Sometime in June if I remember right.  I sent another e-mail asking William for the exact dates.
