Hi, Chris-

How's this?

[[
In just a month W3C and Adobe are teaming up with other partners to host 
a developer conference and a Web Platform Doc Sprint.

W3Conf, W3C's conference for developers and designers, is coming up on 
February 21-22 at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco. This is not 
just another conference on web development, but a showcase on the most 
pragmatic aspects of web standards, stuff you can use today. The opening 
session, delivered by Mozilla's Janet Swisher and W3C's Doug Schepers, 
will feature Web Platform Docs and community involvement. Other speakers 
who have contributed to WebPlatform.org include CJ Gammon on digital 
books, Lea Verou on CSS secrets, and Alexis Deveria on cutting-edge web 
features. The closing keynote on CSS layout is by Eric Meyer, and a 
twist on the classic browser panel will give voice to an authoring tool 
vendor and a developer and designer from the audience (maybe you!) to 
represent the view from the trenches.

The accompanying Doc Sprint to bolster the content on Web Platform Docs 
will be held the day after the conference, Saturday February 23rd, at 
the Adobe office. This is a free all-day event where you can meet the 
developers behind WebPlatform.org, and learn how you can help create 
content on Web Platform Docs, or even take the lead in areas that you're 
an expert on. Contributing to Web Platform Docs is a great way to let 
your light shine.

Come join us for both events! Register for W3Conf with the promo code 
'webplatform' and get $120 off the fee. And don't forget to register for 
the Doc Sprint... it's free, and a great way to get involved.
]]

Regards-
-Doug
