I'm first going to list all the proposals, then group them, then attempt to schedule them.  If you're reading this page now, I think I finished 'listing'.  The first division I'll make is between people who will be present in person, and those who will not be attending; feel free to correct if you know you will/will not attend.

Adopt a speaker!

These are out-of-town speakers (and links to their proposals) who could present at Sugarcamp.

Please feel free to add anyone I've missed; I just compiled this quickly by scanning emails to devel@ and sugar@ with 'Proposal' in the title. If you're one of the listed developers, please add your location and the approximate cost of airfare, if you can determine it -- or remove yourself if you've made a proposal but aren't actually interested in attending, or can donate your own travel costs. I tried to roughly sort by number of proposals made (talks to be given).
