Going to Japan

I'm going to Japan the first week in November. Specifically, I'll be leaving Oct 31st, arriving in Tokyo on Nov 1st. I'll be speaking at FOSS4G 2008: Tokyo on Nov 1st, staying in Tokyo until ~Nov 5th, then going to Osaka; from Osaka, I'll be speaking at FOSS4G 2008: Osaka, and then I'll be flying back to the states on Nov 10th. I'll be acting as a keynote speaker on OpenLayers, and may also be helping to lead a hands-on session/workshop.

I'm doing this thanks in large part to the support of Orkney (in conjunction with OSGeo Japan) and MetaCarta.

(I wonder if I can get people together for a "Chris wasn't eaten by a Japanese Octopus" party...)
