Ok, firstly, how did you advertise your conference? Secondly, how many of these types of conferences are there already, and how well attended are they? Lastly, in your presentations in existing conferences on this topic (assuming in a wider scope conference), how many people actually attended YOUR talks?
You need to make sure that you are adding enough value for people to pay the money to attend and for employers to believe that the time spent at your conference is a better use of the paid time for their employees than would be spent staying at work and reading some books on the topic. I'm not trying to be harsh, but it's definitely worthwhile making sure you do your research first. There's also the possibility that if you manage to get the conference off the ground, that in a few years time it will really start to expand. But at the get go, you need to really be adding some value for attendees and the companies paying for them.
Nah, because even artificial meat has to be closer to meat than whatever that is in a Big Mac
Mmm, now I'm hungry!
An earlier article said around 1.5 kilograms (no I can't find it again). Our cat is reasonably small at 3 kilograms, so this rat would hardly be the size of a "well fed cat."
Having said that, I doubt I'd want it trying to take a chunk out of my leg.
Did you know that 80% of all Harleys ever made are still on the road?
The other 20% made it home safely...
This is the first outage I've heard of
Really? We had several outages that affected my old company, who was using it as their main email provider. No notice either for one scheduled outage, just "GMail is down for maintenance." Granted, we're in Australia so the times they took it down might have been fine in the US, but a notification would have been good beforehand.
