[OSGeo-Discuss] some post-FOSS4G thoughts

I assumed the individuals attending a regional conference wouldn't be
attending the international conference.

For example: I might be able to attend a conference put on in Seattle,
but never anything outside of the West Cost.

The projects I work on are international; it is hard enough for 
developers to get enough money together to attend one FOSS4G - let alone

FOSS4G and a (multiple?) regional conferences.
There is also the related costs of development teams slow down while 
members get presentations ready, are not online during the conference, 
and generally missing the week after :-)
