SCALE registration surges ahead of previous years
While it's always dangerous making predictions about attendance at SCALE, the SCALE staff watches pre-registrations closely. That's not only for revenue purposes, but to get a sense of how successful the Expo may be (we really CARE about the show - can you tell??)
That being said, at this point in time (36 hours before SCALE starts) pre-registrations for SCALE 8X are running over 30% higher (!) than this time last year. That bodes very well for the health of the OpenSource community in general, and the Southern California Linux Expo specifically. It should be an awesome show!
