IBM Impact 2011

- Are you attending the IBM Impact 2011 conference?
- Do you use wsadminlib?
- Would you like to give a brief presentation with me?

I have proposed a session on wsadminlib to the Impact committee.  I proposed introducing wsadminlib and explaining how to use it.  If the session is accepted, I would like to recruit a wsadminlib user to speak along with me, to give a brief perspective and testimonial.

There are some perks for speakers too.
