Phew... Handling PostgreSQL Conference East 08

When Selena and I started with the Fall Conference last October we had no idea what a success it was going to be. O.k., Selena swears she knew but I was surprised. After Fall there was zero question that we were going to do an East. The community demand was just too high and we have a volume of not only contributors but also general community on the East coast. Since the announcement of East I have had a lot of people contacting me directly. Many of these people I had never even heard of, all of them were telling me they plan on attended and they wanted to know how they could help. I was surprised at the number of lurkers we have on the lists. In fact, we have had so much direct contact about the conference that the Organizing team has increased the number of rooms we will have at the conference. This is in turn is going to increase the amount of content that we can provide to our attendees. Now that our facilities and dates are firm, we can start on the real work, which is insuring that our attendees receive best of breed tutorials, talks and (possibly) mini-tutorials. As you are thinking about how you are going to recover from Spring Break (do we still recover from Spring Break?), consider coming to Maryland on March 29th and 30th.
