IIRC its wasn't really made clear to me it was a "would you be
interested in attending" and since I was flying to Houston at that time
I didn't think any more of it.

The thing is we did post about attending NEA and we posted a summary
after attending with some analysis of the marketing strategy adopted and
its implications for others doing the same thing but no-one seemed
particularly interested. Maybe there needs to be some sort of evaluation
after each conference attended. However, that is just another drain on
resources if no action is taken as a result.

That fits with what I remember and I was going to Houston straight after
Regicon to see Gary Frederick so I didn't think too much about SCALE.
