+ - Conferences - Are Smaller Better?-> 2

Submitted by
Bandman
Bandman writes "Tom Limoncelli, author of 'The Practice of System and Network Administration', discusses how difficult it is for geeks to build real-life communities if you live outside of a couple high-density tech-oriented areas.

The solution he has in mind are regional conferences devoted to specific topics. He's going to be speaking at the NJ-based PICC'11, but even long-running events like PAX started as a small conference meant to build community.

Having a small group of organizers dedicated to building a local community seems to be more economical for everyone involved, and leads to events where everyone can take a bigger part in the process."

They're also seeking Python authors, so if you're doing something cool with Python and want some extra cash, let them know. Visit the Python Magazine site, or view the announcement by their Editor in Chief."
