WalterCon 2004 Announced

by @ 9:04 pm on 3/22/2004. Filed under BeUnited

The OpenBeOS project announced its first conference to be held this summer in Columbus, Ohio. Michael Phipps calls the first conference “One short, action packed weekend full of fun and excitement. We’ll get started at 9 or 10 AM on Saturday and finish up about 5PM on Sunday.” Conference attendees will be among the first to hear the new project name and get a glimpse at the long awaited brand spanking new website. The conference is scheduled for June 19-20, 2004 and slated to kick off at 9 to 10 a.m. on Saturday. Head on over the OpenBeOS website for more details on registration and room arrangements. BeUnited has already announced its planned presence at the conference and I’m sure there are more to follow.

    I am considering going to this. The hotel and conference calls are very reasonable. That said, the cheapest flights I can find are like $300. So the odds got a lot worse.

    I may do one of those priceline last minute attempts to see if I can get a flight for like 150$ at the last minute.

    I would drive, but Dallas is a LONG way from Ohio. :-/

    Maybe the flight cost wouldnt seem so bad if it was at the beach. 😉

    I’m hopeing that I’ll be able to show. I’ll have to wait until we get a little bit closer to tell though!

    Ryan, give me a ring one of these days… you may only need drive to Denver (actually driving, that is – still a long car ride though). Robin and I are planning on going, and we might drive vice fly (tickets from Denver are around $300 round trip as well).

    That would almost be worse actually. Then it would take 3 days. 😉

    Plus, it’s more about the time than the money. I can’t take 6 days off work for a 2 day weekend conference. If I go, it will be a fly in friday night, leave sunday night thing.

    Plus, I need to see an actual agenda/schedule before I commit to that sort of thing.

    But I do think OBOS is the future, so I would love to be at it’s first conference. Plus it’s got a great name.

    That seems a very expensive flight – I can do a round trip from the UK for about £420 ($600 or so). Still far too expensive, but it would be great to be at the historic, intimate, first ever OBOS conference 😀

    Can you fellas say “price wars”? The airlines ALWAYS do fare wars near the beginning of the summer. Nutcase, keep that watch on Priceline, I am sure it will get a couple of hits over the next month or so. I am going to begin checking flight prices on a daily basis as well. If I can get Deej and myself tickets for <$150 each, we are going!

    If i can get a dirt cheap ticket, I will probably go. Otherwise, not likely.

    And if that thong thing is real, I am not going. I do not desire to see a ton of beos geeks in thongs. Though if Claire from back in the day goes…. things may be different. ;P
