I proposed an idea to speak at OSCON in Portland, OR, so I travelled internationally to speak. The event gave me a free ticket, and I was not paid to speak. The event assisted with part of my travel and accommodation. My employer paid some of my travel expenses, and I was working while speaking at the event. My speaking slot was 40 minutes for this event, and I had a mostly good time. I'm a man who has been speaking for 15 years. This was a for profit event.
