Response to: O'Reilly Conference Exclusion

I would just like to let my voice be heard as saying: I agree with this post 100%. These conferences do tend to exclude based on commerce & locale way more than they do based on politics. The problem is when commerce quickly and easily translates to politics.

    So what are the options? You cut down on price and O'Reillys have to cut down on content. If the content is poor will you still want to go even though its 100 bucks cheaper? O'Reillys isn't a charity. It supplies a service that people want, at a price enough people can afford, so that O'Reillys make enough profit to make them want to put on the next.
    If you are college students and there are enough of you at your college interested, why not invite the keynotes to come to your college? Most, I think would be flattered.(BTW, I don't work for O'Reillys, just being realistic)
