Just one person's perspective on it - Ed's right, but now let me present my

A number of people asked me why I wasn't speaking/presenting about The
Geometry Forum. Mainly because of the lead time. It's very hard to tell,
with a grant-based project that employs one full-time person, what we'll be
doing a year in advance. For next year, for instance, we don't even know
if we'll have any money to do anything, much less travel to San Diego. So
it's easier for us (and we're lucky to be able) to hang with someone in the
exhibit hall and hope to reach as many people as possible.

So how do I work around that? Take my chances and push my luck?
