Quoting: "At YAPC::NA in Toronto he had noticed that about half the people had never been to a conference before. They didn't quite understand the culture (Why is everyone looking at their laptops during talks? Why are all the laptops Powerbooks?) and that they were reticent to join in conversations or groups since they didn't know anyone."


Those were EXACTLY the two questions I left Toronto still wondering! I laughed out loud when I read your column, Brian!
