It cost me about $400 more to go to Adelaide than it would have for me
to stay in Brisbane, purely based on flight costs too. Big deal.

If you can't make the conference one year, well, that sucks, but that's
one reason why it's good to keep moving it around. No particular place
is perfect for everyone.

One of the ways in which they're doing this is by considering sharing the
conference with New Zealand in order to avoid having the NZers start their
own competing conference and drawing away interest and speakers from LCA.
