    I really appreciate you taking the time to find out the $$ involved! Here from Victoria, BC, Canada, I don’t see any that I am likely to attend, though I just went to Northern Voice in Vancouver which was affordable and fantastic!

    Not sure how the $$ work:
    $$$$ BlogHer March = $717.90
    $$$ World Wide Web Conference = $1295 for all five days
    $ Gnomedex August = $449.00, info is available

    Honestly, maintaining this list is painful, as I thought I’d have more help from the community to support it. So I often overlook the exact details of the cost of an event. So I’m still working on how to set the pricing scale.

    If there isn’t more interest, I will stop doing this for so many events and only concentrate on the free and/or strictly related to WordPress events.

    Open Source CMS Summit
    March 22nd and 23rd on Yahoo campus

    Lorelle – why in the world isn’t WordPress there? Next year! We need to grow this OSCMS into a huge annual geek fest!

    Thanks for this list – very helpful…Amy 🙂

    Sorry for spamming your comments. Just got to thinking…perhaps you could establish a Google Calendar and share it with others who want to help track these events?

    OK…good-bye again (for now!)
