The economy is tough and your company doesn't have money for you to travel, so you can't go to any conferences this year, right?
JBoss is getting its "Second Life" on by hosting a purely virtual conference on Feb 11 (it's not actually in Second Life, it's just streaming over the internet). Not only do you save money on airfare and hotel, you don't even have a conference fee to worry about. You just need to sign up, clear your schedule on Feb 11, and e-ttend! There's even going to be a virtual trade show!
