Just thinking some more about what makes community
conferences better than corporate conferences.

One more difference: the speaker lounge.  At LWCE,
there's in effect this little secret elite conference
just for speakers.  At SCALE, you see speakers out
in conversation in the lobby/bar area.  Looks like
a major attendee bonus.  I'm inclined to ask IDG
management to scratch the speaker lounge, and just
have a speaker office and decent numbers of tables
and chairs set up open to everyone.


(Yes, OpenSource World (was: LWCE) is free of
charge for qualified attendees.  Go sign up,
please.  Also see speaker blog aggregator at
