Thanks Mike for the endorsement, as I'm a kiwi, 'bloke' is fine... now if I was an aussie... it'd be mate... mate. :)

Personally I'd love to go and represent Fedora if I have the chance to.  I also think that Fedora missing this event would be quite bad (I say that because I'm sure the other distros will be there).

Now let me explain why:
* Wellington (Where LCA2010 is this year) is the NZ Capital City, so there are lot of Govt type folks who I think are always interested in things that are free these days - I'm assuming that a few of them are going to make their way to check out LCA.
* Wellington also has quite a strong open source community, so showing off Fedora to these people can do nothing but help Fedora.
