Roland, you would participate if for no other reason, to broaden your knowledge base. Eventually even California will find a reason to go open source, current economic pressures may help push in that direction, or simply waiting until another state has a system that works at a fraction of the cost. By attending seminars such as the one advertised here you either enhance or position yourself as a thought leader. If per chance you ever end up in the private sector, you have remainded tech current.
