Actually, it's Edd Dumbill -- but I think you may have just
coined a new nickname for him: Edd "Dunkin'" Dumbill :)

Anyway, I just talked with Edd about it and it's likely that we
can schedule a BOF session at XTech either in the evening of
Ubiquitous Web Day there -- Tuesday, 15 May -- or in the evening
of Thursday, 17 May. If Tuesday will work for the people who plan
to attend (and if Edd confirms it'll be OK), I think that might be
the better evening for it. If not, I think Thursday will be OK.
(And as far as that Wednesday, I think there's a opening reception
scheduled for that evening.)
