 How can an individual that has passed beyond "student" status afford the
 costs of LISA? I'm already a Usenix member in good standing, but even at
 those rates, to attend the whole week is quite expensive for an
 individual. (It's about equal to my rent here in NYC which isn't cheap)
Simple -- you get them to invite you to give a talk, or you submit a paper that is good enough to be accepted for presentation at the conference. The first time I was successful at doing this for LISA was at LISA 2000, with my talk "The Design and Implementation of Highly Scalable E-Mail Systems".

I will be speaking again at LISA 2002, this time on "Domain Name Server Comparison: BIND 8 vs. BIND 9 vs. djbdns vs. ???", and according to the page at <>, they would appear to have given me ninety minutes of time. Interesting, when I first submitted the proposal, they asked me if I preferred a short (20 min) slot or a long (30 min) slot. And they never did tell me how much time I would be getting....
