Not gonna be able to make it to Google IO this year. My old job let me go (then let me go), and the new place didn't approve my time off.
I'm on the lookout for someone to take my place (and pick up the $900 tab). Waiting to hear back from Google if they'll let me do the transfer. In the mean time, I'm open to hear from interested people. Consideration will go to friends/family, past colleagues and my industry contacts (thats you guys at the SoFL Android Meetup), before perfect strangers.
Leave me a message on my Google+ post if interested or know someone who might be: http://goo.gl/XOpEB
