I want to speak at your user group!
Having organized the hsv.rb group for a couple of years, I know it can be hard to find speakers. So, if you lead a user group and are looking for a speaker please get in touch with me. I'm looking for groups who are interested in learning about Pakyow, a web framework for Ruby.
There are several talks I can give depending on the flavor of your user group. I'm also willing to travel. I live in the Southeast (and love to drive), so anything within 6 hours of Huntsville, AL is a good possibility. For those on the West Coast, I'll be in your neighborhood for a few weeks starting in February (based in Seattle). I have a couple of trips planned to San Francisco while I'm on that side of the country, so there are some good options here.
