That's definitely one of the target audiences.  I have a talk in mind to 
do with general "numeric plumbing" - getting numbers in and out of 
Excel, from web services and so on - which I think would be appealing to 
this sector.

I cooked up this idea with Thoughtworks last April because they actually 
consult for a lot of these firms, and was hoping to do an initial one 
last summer but it never came off.  They are plugged into a lot of these 
places.  I'm pretty sure those on this list could tell half a dozen banks.
