Hey everybody,

As you (hopefully) have heard by now, Lucid Imagination is sponsoring a 
Lucene/Solr conference in Boston about 6 weeks from now.  We've got a lot 
of really great speakers lined up to give some really interesting 
technical talks, so I offered to do something a little bit different.

I'm going to be in the hot seat for a "Stump The Chump" style session, 
where I'll be answering Solr questions live and unrehearsed...

The goal is to really make me sweat and work hard to think of creative 
solutions to non-trivial problems on the spot -- like when I answer 
questions on the solr-user mailing list, except in a crowded room with 
hundreds of people staring at me and laughing.

But in order to be a success, we need your questions/problems/challenges!

If you had a tough situation with Solr that you managed to solve with a 
creative solution (or haven't solved yet) and are interesting to see what 
type of solution I might come up with under pressure, please email a 
description of your problem to -- More details 

Even if you won't be able to make it to Boston, please send in any 
challenging problems you would be interested to see me tackle under the 
gun.  The session will be recorded, and the video will be posted online 
shortly after the conference has ended.  And if you can make it to Boston: 
all the more fun to watch live and in person (and maybe answer follow up 

In any case, it should be a very interesting session: folks will either 
get to learn a lot, or laugh at me a lot, or both.  (win/win/win)


--  ...  October 7-8, Boston      ...  Stump The Chump!
