Long ago, in another galaxy... Er... No, sorry, that's another topic. Long ago, on this planet, there were the International World Wide Web Conferences. Those who attended the first confs, in Geneva, Chicago, Darmstadt, Boston, Paris and Santa-Clara remember how cool and exciting it was. Everyone was there. Everything was there. It was marvelous.

But those days are almost over and the XTech 2005 conference in Amsterdam offers an impressive schedule that easily beats the last IW3C's, from my point of view. I'll attend that conf, arriving in Amsterdam next tuesday. I'll stay at the Novotel, at walking distance from the conference center. See you there!
