I only just read this while looking for the dates.
A couple of comments -
- Do something with the website please... the current one is useless for
anything at all
- $600 is a lot of money for small ISP's;
Don't forget your roots guys - you were all once small ISP's.. and
how would have $600 looked for you back then? Last year I saw quite a
reasonable amount of small ISP's there... but I wouldn't be expecting them
at this new price. I look after a lot of small ISP's and I know it would be
a challenge for them, and even the bigger ones would probably send the
minimal possible. The big establish boys won't have a problem, but
start-ups are going to find it a challenge to rub shoulders and network with
the big boys if they can't afford to go. What happened to the spirit of

Subject: [AusNOG] AusNOG-02
The organisers of the highly successful AusNOG-01 are proud announce the
dates for AusNOG-02. This year will we be holding AusNOG at the Sydney
Convention and Exhibition Centre at Darling Harbour (Sydney, Australia) on
August 21 and 22, 2008. As APNIC 26 in on the following week in NZ we
selected this time to help maximise international travel plans.
The full program will be released in draft on the 18th of July and fully by
the 25th of July. We expect just as many high quality speakers this year as
last year. The Call for Presentations will be sent out shortly and we ask
that you all keep and eye out for that forward it to anybody who you think
would be able to present.
The conference fees this years are expected to be $600 for early bird and
$650 for later registrations. Whilst we understand this is higher than last
year the organisers felt that this was required in order to ensure a high
level of quality for the conference whilst they maintained their sanity.
Volunteers are always welcome but if you are going to volunteer please
understand that we will assume the time you pledge can be called on.
Please contact us at organisers at ausnog.net for any further details.
