I'm not sure if I'm on the list or not, but I'm not going to be able to make tomorrow unfortantely, so there's potentially a free seat going. There doesn't seem to be a way change my status to not attending.

If I'm going to start taking picures that early in the morning I hope that someone has arranged some strong coffee.

A great initiative such as this deserves the vuvuzela treatment. I intend to blog your baby to within an inch of its short life before, during and after the launch event. :)
