I know the work you are sponsoring must be costing you lots, but if
you could sponsor someone to attend the next UDS, I think it will pay
off greatly.

I have to confess than in the Maverick UDS there was a blueprint about
Sugar but I messed the schedule up and attended something else instead

But once you get there, and if you can find the right person, you can
have a much better upstream-downstream conversation than most people
