I am still undecided about my attending this conference. It would require quite a chunk of change (for traveling expenses, not the conference itself) that I do not feel comfortable spending on myself. I could raise the money, but, then again, I’m not sure I’d want to spend it all on a trip for myself. I mean, $1000 will go a long way if I don’t spend it on plane tickets and a hotel room. Nevertheless, I am glad that it’s being offered and I hope it is well-attended. Perhaps, the next one will be held at a venue closer to my location.
