Yes. Attendance must be in person, so you need to be able to get to NYC and spend a night there as the conference spans for 2 days.
However, this is a fantastic opportunity.

The drawing was done randomly but I wanted to give those who have been members for a longer time and those who have participated quite a bit a greater chance of victory, so here is how it worked:
1. everybody got a number of points (number of chances that they could win)
2. 1 chance for every post made and 5 chances for every kudos
3. Then everybody got a percentile arranged and their chances of winning
4. I have arranged the usernames in reverse order (the latest sign ups went first)
5. Here is how the table looked, so for example amp0201 had 11 chances of winning if the number was between 1 and 11
6. Random number was generated and it was 68.7, which can be rounded up to 69 and that was (by one point) within shaselai's territory. He is the winner.

Code:
#   Username   Posts   Kudos   Total Points    Spread
1   amp0201   129   5   154    11
2   krazo   5   0   5    12
3   shaselai   534   53   799    69
4   saxenashobhit   14   0   14    70
5   mba2013   77   8   117    78
6   Silvers   144   28   284    98
7   omarjmh   19   0   19    99
8   someonear   1   0   1    100





!
shaselai is the winner!
