I wanted to reiterate my support for this model.  FUDCon is forced to
be many things to many people, and thus ends up very expensive from a
logistical point of view as well as a financial one.  FADs give us
flexibility in spending, organizing, and reporting, and also spread
the public awareness messages about advancements we make throughout
the year rather than clustering them around a single event per region.
