  I could not agree with you more!  But I think it speaks to having regional
as well as international conferences.  As we all know, applications for GIS
is growing at a prodigious rate and the need for frequent interaction
between developers and others grows apace.

If you 'reverse the directions' in Chip's text, you might get
the wording used by people in Capetown to explain why they
perhaps didn't wouldn't a FOSS4G conference in Seattle. And
the same might have been said for some people in Australia who
didn't attend FOSS4G 2007 in Victoria BC Canada, but then you
could probably 'reverse' that in 2009 for why some people won't
attend FOSS4G 2009 in Sydney Australia. It just reinforces
that by moving FOSS4G around geographically, each year some
people will be unable to attend, while at the same time
others will have an opportunity to attend that year. Overall,
the most good for the most people, given time.
