Edinburgh Conference Partners?

My feeling is that THIS conference will be a THE MAJOR EVENT- in the sense
of that in one year I believe LiveCode 8 will be fully functioning and be
as stable as it ever could be, widgets will be flourishing, and it could
become the actual start of the new era for such nice product to reach far
out to the world.
I hope with this event all the sweating on the part of the developers would
then hopefully be finding the success deserved. :-)
All I wanted to actually say:
I have the same request as Peter Reid, not coming alone, but being
accompanied, sitting almost in the same boat.
Any idea for friends and spouses who are not coding anything except
possibly their age?)
