No ApacheCon 2005 for me as well

They didn’t get enough tutorial sign ups by their Nov. 12th deadline (ApacheCon does terrible marketing), and since I really hadn’t wanted to do a tutorial in the first place, I offered to cancel rather than try and come up with a last-minute way to boost attendance.”

I’m in the same position as Howard. As of today, there’s only two people registered for my Cocoon tutorial (apologies to them), so I will probably ask the organizers to cancel it. And since they rejected the two other talks I submitted, I’d find it hard to justify spending a couple thousand dollars just to go to San Diego.

It’s a pity, but I will try to find comfort in exploiting the long weekend that starts on Dec. 8th (national holiday here) to begin the ski season. I hope that, if I cannot have tutorial attendees in San Diego, at least I can have snow on the Alps.
