I would spend my time heckling Yourdon.  That's what I would do.

I love Yourdon.  Decline & Fall of the American Programmer may have been wrong for certain meanings of "wrong," but it had so much good analysis that being wrong is totally irrelevant.  For example, his talk on how Methodologies must make money for its evangelists and then fade away, to be effective, was spot-on.  If you don't make money from it and create hype, it won't catch on.  The people behind Aspect-oriented programming should consider this.  The XML televangelists did this, making all sorts of outrageous claims, and hey it worked in the end.

But for Prakash's question... who doesn't like a junket?  Fun!  Last time I went on one, I met a close friend, and visited a great city.
