I wonder if Lockergome will provide nTags (RFID enabled badges) at Gnomedex this year. They look pretty slick.

For about the price of a meal, nTAGs multiply the effectiveness of your gathering, help your event run more smoothly, replace other costs, and capture valuable data on every aspect of your event.

Mike made a good point about convincing your employer to pay for your trip to Gnomedex. It would be an easier sell if the "3 day open bar" icon was removed from the main page.
