I expect the cost of the travel for the European attendees to
out-weigh the savings on food and lodging. I'd much rather see it held
somewhere in the EU though maybe thats just because I like getting out
of the US. If the European developers want to come over then as far as
the technical side of the conference goes LA seems to work best but
I'd still rather it be in Amsterdam or Berlin. One thing I always keep
in mind is the wineconf turns in to something more in regards to the
social experience when we meet. Not that I am trying to knock on LA or
Californian culture in general, I just think, for me at least another
EU conf will be much more enjoyable and the same presentations and
discussions can happen no matter where we hold it.
