    This is an excellent idea.

    The fine print is that all participants must pay all expenses.
    (Unless The Squeak Foundation decides to spend few million
    Euros for the event ;-)

    The good news is that, I think, the expenses is not more than $50.

    Some don't even have to pay this $50, because they already had it,
    the webcam.
