   Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! :)
   It sucks that they're basically doing the same thing, but you could take
that as validation of your concept - there's clearly a market at upscale
conferences for innovative community-building badges.

   I don't know how far you want to take the Fireflies, but there's a bunch
of big spring conferences coming up and now's probably the time to get your
foot in the door.

   Many of these places have attendances above 20,000, and charge up to
$1000 for registration, so they've got the budget to drop $20 on an
intelligent badge.
