As an aside, you may not know that Ian, Daniel and I received
invitations to attend this year's SCALE, after the SCALE organisers
discovered that we were speaking at DLS (which was held this year the
week just before SCALE; in fact, there may have been some overlap in
dates). Unfortunately, the invitations arrived far too late for any
of us to change our travel plans.
Interesting. Did they invite you independent of OOo or as
representatives of OOo?
I don't remember, and I can't find the note (I probably deleted
it long ago). The context was "since you're in the area anyway,
perhaps you could come to LA for a day or two after DLS; we'll
let you in free", so I took it as a personal invitation.
If the latter, it would have been nice if you'd
then forwarded them to the project's lists, specifically
firstname.lastname@example.org, or even this one, as that way we could
have seen if others could have attended, had it been in the Project's
interest to do so.
If I recall correctly, the invitation arrived on the first or
second day of RegiCon... in other words, only 2 or 3 days before
the SCALE conference itself.
