Thanks to everybody who donated. We've indeed reached our goal, and I will be going to the conference. You rock!

What a great opportunity for you. Have a blast! Are you planning on writing up a trip report on your blog?

I most certainly will. :D

I'm all for this, but "legal and liability reasons" do not require an escort for a 16-year-old on a plane trip across the country.

Well, maybe not, but I wouldn't ask him to travel alone, anyway – if anything unfortunate happened, I wouldn't be able to forgive myself. In any case, I've never done anything like this before, so I was trying to be careful. Of course, IANAL.

Whoa...oh, sorry.

I donated. I too am a native Alabamian. Go Rayne!

Well that was fast! It would seem the goal has already been met. Nothing more impressive than a strong community.

I don't use clojure, but this seems totally solid to me. I sent in a small donation because it seems like such a good idea.

It's very appreciated. Thank you very much.

Thank you to everyone who donated, and thank you again to Relevance for covering Raynes' lodging and conference admission.

Numbers, more thank-you's, and more here: http://bit.ly/aj0XPr

I've been similarly support by the community before (future ruby, what what).

This is awesome. Donated. Good luck Raynes!

Wow, on target already. Congrats Rayne! Wish I was attending :)
