Good news for travel plans and DFW

From a very recent email by the incomparable Matt Bucher via wallace-l:

"Just wanted to let you know that if you can't make it to Austin for
the September 14 opening of the DFW rchive, the event will be
streamed live to the web:

Also, there will likely be another event at the Ransom Center next
spring in Austin to celebrate the publication of The Pale King. I
don't know much about the details of it yet, but it will mostly likely
be a multi-day symposium. Next year is also the 15-year anniversary of
the publication of Infinite Jest and the founding of wallace-l. I am
thinking of having an additional event in Austin at that time to
celebrate the anniversary of the list. More to come on the details of
that over the next few months, but if you've ever thought about a trip
to Austin, spring 2011 might be a good time."

Not going to lie, my first thought reading the end of this email was "yes, yes I have thought about going to Austin and spring 2011 sounds like a great time." We'll see what happens.
