Nobody was questioning your commitment to promote PHP, but that hardly
address the problem of making PHP a credible choice for development
before people that could be using it with advantage but hardly are using
it because they hardly know about it.

The talks that you give are for people that already know about PHP. The
people, in special the corporations, even don't know about PHP to be
bothered to attend. You can't just expect people to follow you where you
are if they even don't know PHP as a language with reputation,
especially in the corporate world dominated by Microsoft stuff. That is
what I telling you to address.
