English Visual Novel panel at Fanime?

I'm going to be going to Fanime, an anime and visual media convention held in San Jose, California this coming Memorial Day weekend (in May), to promote a VN I'm working on called Bliss Stage: Love Is Your Weapon - and I just checked Fanime's page on discussion panels yesterday. It's a pretty sweet deal! Reduced admission price, up to and including a free weekend badge for doing 3 hours of panels over the course of the entire convention, isn't too shabby - though of course this doesn't cover transportation and lodging.

Would anyone here be interested in a 50 minute or 90 minute discussion panel on English Language visual novels, including OELVN's? Definitely covering the success of Katawa Shoujo: other possible things to cover are the fanlation scene, the perception that all visual novels are hentai games, other breakout hits (Fate/Stay Night, Ever 17, Phoenix Wright, 999), the Lemmasoft community, the Ren'Py engine, and so on.

Also, would anyone on the Katawa Shoujo Dev-Team want to join us? As I mentioned, it would greatly reduce the cost of convention admission. We can't really do much about transportation, or hotel costs unless you're comfortable sharing a room with strangers, but $30 to $60+ bucks cheaper at a con is pretty decent.

Planning early because the alpha release of my own game is out this week, and because the sooner I plan this the cheaper it stays.
