I just heard on debian-devel. I'm not surprised, but it is a shame.
There are so many West Coast Linux shows. And LW in New York. And
everywhere else...except the Southeast. Isn't the Durham show gone,

I'm all in favor. The best ALSes were the early ALSes. Re-capturing
some of that feel, plus replacing a show in the Southeast sounds like a
great idea. The problem is coordination.
How does ALS staff, especially from the years past, feel about the move?
