There was *no* business people at last year's conference. To be exact,
there was some companies fishing for business, but not a single person that
looked, even remotely, like someone would could write a check :-)

We can go either way: hackers only event OR business and hackers event.
Both are fine as long as the target is clearly defined. Last year was the
former, *not* the latter.

I was the one suggesting along with Nicolas Pettiaux that we could make
it otherwise, but it does not *have* to be otherwise. There are other
ways to get in touch with businesses than that kind of event.
