If you're going to do that, please rotate where you hold it.  It's a
lot cheaper for Europeans to travel around Europe than to travel over
to the US, so if you only held them in the US you're putting a
significant barrier in place for the Europeans.  I would probably have
come to the last Zurich FUDCon if I hadn't just changed employer and
country with all the associated expenses.  I'm unlikely to travel to
the US for a FUDCon.
