Well, barring any last minute hitches, it looks like Jeff who is Senior Manager of Web Services Evangelism at Amazon has kindly agreed to come to Glasgow.
The amazing thing is it was all very new technologies (bar some email to and fro-ing) that brought us together. He put a message on Twitter. About 1 minute later i mailed him via his blog. He sent me to WetPaint where i edited his schedule wiki and we were done.
Now i need to sort things out this end - that shouldn't be too hard!
