>> Adam and I had DOZENS of people who were flabbergasted at the decision to stop the discussion come and complain to us at the computer/software store. It was the single biggest complaint we received at the event.

Okay, so let the hardcore nerds, who lack any clue about business/marketing, run your next show. I'll make popcorn and watch how that goes.

I brought in friggin KEN THOMPSON. Also, from past years: Brian Kernighan, the ARPAnet director, the co-inventor of BASIC, Dan Kottke, Ted Nelson, Stewart Cheifet, Bob Frankston, Dave Ahl, Bill Mauchly, Bill Cheswick, Maris Graube, Jason Scott, Bil Herd, John Blakenbaker, Bjarne Stroustrup, Dave Walden, and Don Eyles.

Your current showrunner brought the VIC-20 marketing guy.

Why listen to me? I can't imagine.
