SqueezeCon? lol.

Ya, we are going to wedge one in here before the big #7.

A bunch of us are going to be there anyway, and we were planning a pub crawl when someone said the magic word "conference" - so lets do it!

This thing will probably sell out fast...

80% of the london attendees are from england. 80% of the signups normally take place within the last six weeks.

Lets rock!

Can't wait to see everyone again. The London PubConf is one of my favorite things!

This year its going to be 100% of the signups. Sorry .. don't mean to snipe at you, my wife and I were kinda hoping for a two / three month notice.

Sorry I wont get to meet y'all...

If anyone feels like a daytrip down to Spain, drop me a sticky.

Wow. I'm bummed. I was looking forward to going to London this time around. It's obvious from the short notice that Brett doesn't have any children.

I can almost remember the time when 3 weeks notice for a trip across the pond would sound logical.

There are some killer deals to london right now from the US. As cheap as they have been all year.

deja vu - didn't you say that the other times too ;-)

Have faith - no one is saying there can't be more to do in london this year ;-)

OK, So where's everyone staying? SES is @ the Novotel. Should we move to the Thistle, or does anyone have any better ideas?

Dang, can't make that happen that fast. And I really wanted to be at the next one.

Guess I'll have to shoot for the wild wild West.

Rock n' roll.

I've been waiting for a PubCon I could afford to fly to...

I had enough spare to shell out for return flights to Boston, by the time Orlando came around. And I could cover Orlando now (but probably not late Feb without pushing the boat out).

Now it turns out, it's going to cost me a quid on the bus.

And a free bar... hmmm... I reckon I can get through more than $99 worth of beer in one afternoon, so I might even leave with a net surplus >;->

Any hopes of scoring a free pass for SES if I sign up for pubcon? Might be able to justify spending about $1000 if it were a three / four day event.

>>cheap tickets

guess maybe I should move to the states - my ticket would be the most expensive ticket I've bought for a PubCon yet. Oh well - off to beg the wife for permission...

Exhibition hall pass is still free I think. But networking takes place in the lobby, so just go to the bar and be happy.

Darn, I've got a one hour drive to this location. Brett, couldn't you have it anywhere closer? :)

Less than ONE MONTH of notice!? For an international conference?

A bunch of us are going to be there now, and we decided - why wait?

Sure... Good way to limit attendees to people within driving distance and folks wealthy enough to keep international airfare sitting around in their 'mad money' jar.

Probably a very effective way to shut out the rabble, eh? ;)

Never thought of that, but now that you mention it - I will keep it in mind. haha! Get your frozen alaskan rear outta the chair and come on over ;-)

50 so far...

Buy my plane tickets for me. ;) I can't afford to pay trans-atlantic airfare at the drop of a hat.

<sour grapes>
Besides, it's Spring here, and it will be beautiful by June. Why would I want to miss part of the most fabulous time of year in Alaska, to go over to England in the middle of tourist season?
