Tim is right and I like the idea that people who give away their crown jewels know-how are not on top of it punished by having to pay for it.
On the other hand missing presenters in Cape Town was number one complaint by far. So we will have to do something about it - if the respective LOCs have good suggestions - I am all open for ideas. If not it might well be necessary to have people sign in before they can even submit. I think that we are comfortable enough with current numbers of submitted proposals to raise the bar a bit.
