In regards to OnlyoneTV we're currently discussing future advertising. We're big fans of Bruce and his network and will continue to advertise with them. He's in Japan right now and should be working on something exciting. We might have to convince him to come down to Chile next.
Given the Thailand flap, and remembering the MtGox hack, I have to say that you guys have impeccable timing and/or great fortune.
The conference venue does not hold much interest to me. I doubt if I personally would go if it were in my area since I am not into that sort of thing, but I have to say that I it *does* seem to me to be in poor taste and ironic given the goals of the recent charity drive brainstorm idea (which seems imho to have gone a bit off track.)
More importantly, I have a very negative taste about 'all the important people' escaping the '13 year olds' here on the forum and decamping for some cloistered set of private mailing lists. For one, I don't see _that_ much problem here (though this is the first 'social' thing I've participated in since cutting my teeth in alt.politics a decade and a half ago.) I see plenty of people with valuable contributions and ideas here still and the more immature of us are still good for a laugh from time to time.
I hope that Tradehill will continue to take a minimal interest in posting at least Tradehill related news on this old forum.
