Well, I've been more than a little lax in following through on my
conference coordinator duties.  My apologies.  The good news is that
I've finally got dates:  Monday-Wednesday, August 4-6 2008.

First major todo, line up speakers.  So, if you'd like to give a talk,
please send me email (braddr puremagic.com) with a brief description of
what you want to talk about and how much time you think you'd like (aim
for somewhere between 30 and 90 minutes).

I'm planning a similar format to last year with two days of talks and
one day for collaborative development and/or open discussion.

More as developments unfold.  I'll be putting up the registration pages
once I've gotten at least enough speakers to fill a day to make sure
there's enough to build a conference out of.

Thanks,
Brad

PS:  No, I haven't forgotten about the videos from last year, sigh.
Latest promise is for friday (THIS friday).

Very cool! I won't be able to attend this year, but I'm looking forward to catching up on the presentations afterwards. The conference last year was quite fun. Sean

Update on the speaker front.. still need more, quite a few more. If you've got something you want to talk about, speak up. If you have something you think should be talked about, seek out someone to give the talk and have them get in touch with me. With out more speakers... well, let's not ponder on that too much right now.

The website is up, though rather empty of the important content. See above. :) http://d.puremagic.com/conference2008/ Thanks, Brad
