Well, if you're still on the fence you might qualify for this:


(particularly as you mention you have never attended a DebConf before)

Also, NYC is very active in Clojure, as far as I can tell from the LispNYC 


(don't miss the talk by Rich Hickey in 13 November 2007, it's called "Clojure 
- A Dynamic Programming Language for the JVM" ';-)

If you e-mail their mailing list you might get to meet some other Clojure 
people aside from the DebConf crowd.
