Aedunno, it seemed like a pretty high bar for THATCamp, too. I applied 
anyway and they let me sneak in. :) I had no regrets. I felt very welcome there 
and there were some truly fascinating conversations with that slightly 
different group. I would anticipate a few of the same faces at the Speaking in 
Code summit. It's a wonderful campus in terms of aesthetics, as well.

    #justsayin apply and see if you get to go rather than self limiting and 
definitely disappointing yerself.
