    Unfortunately the “organizing team” is one Khazret Sapenov (whois) who has been very busy making enemies with much of the cloud computing community, including the likes of Reuven Cohen (his former employer despite his fabricated resume), James Urquhart, Sam Johnston, Geva Perry and others for conflicts of interest, censorship, inexplicable bans, etc. As such don’t expect to see much more than relentless spamming and advertalks (virtually all of the submissions are suppliers!). Any word of what happens to the profits (given Eventbrite only keep a buck a ticket)? Guess the consulting didn’t work out…

    I don’t know about the politics involved behind the organizer. For me, the concept is interesting and I would like to see more and more conferences going virtual. My support is for the idea than the person behind the conference.

    AC,
    I don’t know your real name(is that you, Sam?).
    Thanks for update. I’m only one of organizers.
    We are not enemies with Reuven, James and Geva (at least what I know). Sam Johnston definitely has opposition against me, Reuven, Enomaly, James Williams and many others, and I think this is good to have diversity and balance, since this makes life much more interesting. I’ve updated LI profile (by default it puts closest match, so that’s my fault, and my apologies to those who’ve been hurt by this fact).

    Virtual Conferences are the future. Sounds like it’s going to be a great event!
