As of this writing the auction is up to $152 Australian dollars ($118 US dollars).

From February 13 – 15, 2005, Reilly will be attending the DEMO conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. While he’s there he will be trying to interview everyone he can. The show attracts over 5000 people from around the world downloading each show. Cam and Nick says of their audience

“We don’t know who they all are, but we do know that many of them are movers and shakers in the IT & business world. Bloggers. CEOs. CIOs. PR gurus. Software evangelists. Want to get your message out to them in an innovative way?”

The funds raised will be used it to visit my hometown, New York, and King Scoble’s Kingdom (formerly known as “Seattle”). Sounds like a big opportunity for one lucky sponsor!
