Cheers to James Owen for his stewardship of the October Rules Fest for 2008 and 2009. I was only able to attend a small portion of the 2009 conference, but those portions were quite good. The sign of a healthy conference is one where attendees return as presenters and this year had a few such presentations (Andrew! David!). It was great to see everyone again, but I missed a few folks who were unable to return.
I think my previously posted comments from last year are largely still applicable:
Since James is now returning to working for a vendor, October Rules Fest will now be organized by Jason Morris. The conference is in good hands – Jason is an excellent choice. Make your wishes for ORF 2010 known now.
