This post is designed for -discuss, but I thought I'd get more exposure

iiuc, The Fellowship Program has been extended until tomorrow, 2010-08-20

I learnt today that there has not been a *single* applicant for the
program from within Canada. I must say that I am quite disappointed in
my fellow citizens.

There must be at least *one* company that has at least *one* staff
member who is interested in going to the meeting _*all expenses paid*_,
that wouldn't be able to afford it otherwise.

I was the Canadian Fellow last year, and it was an experience that I
will never forget. At first, I was hesitant to apply, as I am someone
who does not like 'freebies'. However, I submitted, and got accepted.

I'm not going to say that the company I work for likely won't finance a
trip this year... but what I can say, is that if nobody else within
Canada steps up, I'd gladly take the honour of being the Fellow again,
and be humble about taking ARIN's generosity.

Come on, there has to be other people who work for small orgs in Canada
that have the same level of interest, and the same financial constraints
as I do.
