We'll work on coming up with an 8th reason to attend. Maybe that will convince you.

I don't expect we'll be hosting them annually. (Hmmm, is this reason #8 to attend?)
too bad... it's so far....
don't you want to make this happen in Paris in the future ?

Seems like some sort of communal suite/carpool/travel/host thread would be nice. Maybe there could be a sticky on this subject?... It would certainly make the trip more affordable for us current students, recent graduates, and non-west-coast dwellers. :)
Especially seeing as to how this may not be an annual event. It's too scary to just say "well, I can't afford it now so I'll save up for the next one..."
So I have to choose between expo74 and another conference I want to go to in DC that expo74 overlaps with.
I know from my own experience that the primary value from conferences tends to come from networking, however I'm left wondering at what experience level the the non-api track will be targetted at; as someone who has been using max for nearly a decade and considers themselves pretty advanced, I'm not sure there's much I'd get out of that.
I really have to do one of those IRCAM workshops , one of these days (I live in Paris). but I'll be honest the fee is a little too much for my budget , but jeez I really really do want to participate. IRCAM is like a Mecca for us nerds.
