When are you going to let it go? For gods sake, if you spent 1/10 of the time that you do knocking the COMMON organization, on anything else you would be a superhero at that.
I think it is time you retire the chip off your shoulder about COMMON.
I can tell you that NONE of them were paid, it was a FREE Conference.

We had discussed this in quite some detail 2 weeks ago, when I had done the initial post. I had said attendance was really good, but COMMON hadn't publicly announced the attendance, so since they just did and I thought I would just post this. It was a really good event, and I listened to quite a few of the sessions (many of the speakers are your fellow M-Lers), and for those that had registered, they could go back and hear the recordings. I had known the attendance before the event, so I had known there were quite a few registered, even though some people hadn't originally known about the event.
Anyway, Here is part of the COMMON newsfeed.
With over 650 registered attendees, great educational sessions, a virtual Expo that was buzzing with activity, and expert speakers, this new COMMON event was a hit. Thank you to the speakers who brought their expertise and shared it with our attendees: Larry Bolhuis, Wayne Bowers, David Brault, Gene Cobb, Birgitta Hauser, Scott Klement, Pete Massiello, Mike Pavlak, Tim Rowe and Robin Tatam.
Don't forget the upcoming RPG/PHP Conference in beautiful warm Tampa, FL this coming Feb 11 & 12th.
