Oh wow. I'll be there too. And give a talk as well. :-)

Let me offer you a beer in Braga, fellow groopie!

This is from Groo, er, 51 (The Arana) ?

May I add that the total audience of the conference will be about
250-300 people, which means that your talk's audience will not have
*all* those people looking at that Groo panel.

I'm doing it for this YAPC as well, using a photo and the logo from the
60's Batman series. I might use a mp3 excerpt from a Batman CD I own,
as well.

Isn't this all fair use? I mean, it's one panel (and for a me a few
photos from the serial). It's not like you're giving away bad
photocopies. I think. Maybe. Hope there are no lawyers in Braga.
