If we're having commercial vendors come in, I'd like to see it as a
vendor shootout.  Bring in three competitors, each can pitch to the
crowd for 30 minutes (with 15 min between presentations to mop up the
blood).

Locally, in addition to Fibrenetics we also have Sentex and Execulink
with hosting packages.  None of them are Big Media (ie. Bell or Rogers),
so they'll be pitching to a friendly crowd.
