Cool. Have the entry fees been finalized yet ?

The Business Track is coming along nicely. Tim and I will try to
get more people interested, but there's no worry in getting enough
talks for the track.

One question: the track submission form allows registering talks
for tracks which were cancelled, e.g. the web services one. I
suppose the track chairmen can simply "grab" talks for these
tracks an stick them on their track, right ?
