Spycraft 2.0 Game: Is anyone interested?

Hello everyone, a friend and I wanted to put together a Spycraft 2.0 game for PAX, which we would run on either Saturday or Sunday in the tabletop gaming room. However, we do not know how many people are interested in Spycraft, or if anyone even knows anything about it, so we first thought we'd throw this out on the table to see how people react to it.
Spycraft is an RPG that is centered around more modern and slightly post-modern settings. While it is based around spy missions (a la James Bond, Mission Impossible, Bourne Identity, et cetera), the system itself is very flexible and is intended to be used for any sort of modern game, ranging from horror to post-apocalyptic. However, we will be running a Spy-based game.
Beginners are welcome, so if you have not played Spycraft before, feel free to join if you are curious and want to learn more about it. Though we will have pre-made characters, I will try to give you as much choice and customization as is prudent. I have run and participated in pick-up RPGs at game cons before, so I realize that while pre-made characters are ideal for a quick setup, people enjoy playing a character that feels a bit more their own.
So anyhow, if enough people seem interested, we'd be happy to set it up. Go ahead and reply on this thread if you would be interested in learning more about it. If you have any questions, please ask away. I do so enjoy answering questions :D . If you feel the need to message me, feel free to do so.
Thanks for your feedback!

    is it a pen and paper RPG?
    how long does it take to play?
    when are you going to run it?

    Yes, it is a pen and paper RPG.

    The game would probably be between 2 hours to 5 hours if people seem to be really enjoying it.

    I just looked at the schedule, and I believe the best time would be on Saturday, starting around 3:30 or 4:00. This may change however, but most likely would be then.

    I could quite possibly be down for this, although I have never played it.

    Is it "newb" friendly?

    If you are familiar with D20 it shouldn't be a problem.

    Agent Vesago is right, and even if you are not familiar with d20, I will be happy to accommodate you. It will be as noob friendly as possible :) .

    I really haven't played much PnP RPGs since high school, which was many a year ago, although I keep meaning to get back into them. I've not played any of the d20 system games, but I'm a quick learner and know the basic mechanics of RPGs pretty well. I'm intrigued, so put me down for a tentative yes, providing scheduling conflicts do not interfere.

    Rankenphile: Alright, we'll be happy to have you there if you wish to join; the D20 system is meant to be pretty easy to understand. Though Spycraft is a bit more of an advanced PnP game, my friend and I will be making it as easy and smooth as possible.

    Note: Ninja edit!

    I'm a maybe. I'd prefer some nice GURPS, but Spycraft 2.0 is pretty okay.

    Mukaikubo: K, awesome. Do you know if there will be any GURPS games going?

    Hah. I wish. I'd kill for a good GM to run a one-shot Transhuman Space campaign.
