So one positive take from the altnetconf is the suggestion that folks hold their own local altnetconf. Franchising the idea seems to be a good way too avoid accusations of elitism and empower instead. I have been talking about an Agile and Open source conference next year, but it make some sense to look at this meme as well. Obviously there is crossover in format with BarCamp, but I don’t think that having a .NET focused event as well would hurt as I suspect we don’t draw the same audience. With Tech Ed and DDD on the horizon I suspect that it makes no sense to hold this before next year, but we could think about putting one on in January 2008.
