Is Xtech 2006 attendance too expensive ?
So I'm sitting in the Foyer Room of the Krasnapol
skystink hotel, listening to Robert Sayre's talk. And to be honest, I am a bit worried because there are roughly 45 persons in the room, and a good half of them are mozillians... I mean Mozilla Corporation folks or Mozilla Community members. And most people in the other half are europeans. I seriously wonder if attendance to Xtech 2006 is not too expensive in a city where lodging is too expensive too far away from the US. Overall, it's a 2000 euros trip for a 3 days conference, meaning students are not here, teachers are not here.
More surprising, Microsoft has not a single talk.
