[EuroPython] EPC 2006

Hi guys and gals,

this list is quite quite (?), I'm wondering if there is some underground
activity regarding the preparation of EuroPython 2006.

I'd like to make a short personal comment: I had a great time this year
in Göteborg this year, and enjoyed the talks a lot. But I was a bit
disappointed by two points:

- there were less people than the previous year

- almost everybody at the conference was also a speaker

- almost everybody had already been there at the previous EPCs

(OK, that's three points, but they are somehow related.)

In other words, we were preaching the converted.

For EPC2006, do you believe that it would be possible to make more noise
and more buzz before the conference, to try to recruit speakers and
non-speakers outside the usual circles, and overall try to get more
exposure for the conference than last year ?

I think that, like we did for the first EPC (IIRC), we should issue a
press release before the end of the year.
