PSLA's conference will be held from April 27-30, 2005 at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center. We're looking into the possiblity of setting up an Internet Cafe to provide email and internet access to participants.

Thanks for your support and the offer of help. I see from your website that you're located in California, so we are, indeed, quite a bit removed geographically. But, if any of your contacts in Pennsylvania can provide loaner hardware that would be great.

I won't be the only person deciding on this and on *how* it's done but I don't think there will be any problem in publicly recognizing and acknowledging that the Internet Cafe was a result of the contributions and efforts of named individuals and/or organizations/companies. Of course, if anyone wants to remain anonymous we'll respect that also.  Do you have other areas of responsibility in mind (in addition to trying to get loaner hardware)?
