Have fun. I was at StartupWeekend Toronto in Sept. It was eye-opening 
and fun - a mini-startup experience in one weekend.

However, if your intent is to showcase Seaside prototyping, that may be 
somewhat at odds with the goals of a StartupWeekend. The technology is a 
secondary issue. More important is the people on the team and the 
startup idea. If you come with an idea, and form the nucleus of a team, 
then Seaside could be your advantage. If you join another team, then you 
have to go with the interests and skills of that team.

The organizer, who had been to many dozens of events around the world to 
facilitate the event, sat with us for one of the dinners. He said that, 
despite the different languages and cultures in the various cities, the 
event played out pretty much the same way in each location. I hope to go 
again the next time it's run here, and I'll try to bring a 
Smalltalk/Seaside "posse" :)
