"The idea is to get together as a community, but most of all, to have 
fun," said Judith Dinowitz, editor of Fusion Authority. "It's like a 
big, warmup party before the bigger one. Like the pre-game show at the 
NFL Superbowl." She promises that this "break-the-ice" event will have 
no serious "break your head" ColdFusion lectures, but that people will 
find themselves learning something about the language through events 
like the CF gameshow that is being planned for the Underground.
