I've searched around and come up short. Can anyone tell me if dc2009.drupalcon.org was built on an existing conference module or installation profile?
On the train ride to the airport after Drupalcon D.C I met up with two Drupal themers from different parts of the country. We had a discussion regarding Drupalcon and the design and theming elements of it. He had a decent suggestion to encourage more growth. He suggested putting on a mini Themer-con that was designed only for Designers/Themers/UI folks.
We talked about it and then thought that maybe at Drupalcon Paris there could be an internal Themercon. Essentially we take one or two rooms and making them the theming presentation rooms.Read more
We are planning on supporting remote presentations again at the Open Media Camp. We did this at last year's Drupal Camp Colorado and were able to get all but one remote presenter connected during the camp. The one problem came because that person didn't test the VNC, iChat, or Skype connection ahead of time. Testing is key to this since every location has different firewall and packet shaping configurations.Read more

This post is an open discussion on the future of Drupalcon management. After Drupalcon Boston held in March, 2008 it became clear that Drupalcon was (is) growing at a rapid rate and that the underlying management infrastructure needs an upgrade. Changes were made for Drupalcon Europe as well as for Drupalcon D.C (2009) and these have proven to be successful. The process still needs to evolve such that we not only meet the demands of the attendees (expected to be 1,200 strong at D.C) but give these attendees the high quality conference they expect. In short, we can and should do more.Read more
Two-Day Crash Course
In two days, participants will build from scratch a rock solid, commercially supported, aesthetically pleasing community website with an online store, without writing a single line of custom code.Read more
UPDATE: Now our space-time continuum has been corrected to allow visits to both DrupalCon and Har2009 this is the time to get yourself a ticket, double check that camping gear in the attic and let me know if you'll be able to come!
August 13-16 2009 Hacking at Random, the next iteration in a 20 year long tradition of open air hacking events will be held in Vierhouten, the Netherlands. These events are (self)organized every 4 years (2 years after every ccc-camp) and are every geeks dream in cool presentations, workshops and technology phun in every way imaginable. I will be there for sure and I post this to find out if there are more Drupal people interested in coming to this event and possibly help to organize a Community Village.
Depending on the number of volunteers and contributers I can imagine anything from just a bunch of small tents gathered around a Drupal Flag drinking beers in the sun to getting some bigger event tents to hold getting started sessions, (security) code sprints or a CMS hacking face off.
The Association met the other day and set the following dates for Drupalcon proposals.
January 31st, 2009: Proposal Deadline Drupalcon Europe 2009 to be held fall 2009
February 15th, 2009: Deadline to submit an intention to submit a Drupalcon North America 2010 proposal.
March 1st, 2009: Proposal deadline for Drupalcon North America 2010
ongoing (2010, 2011, etc.): 30 days before the precending Drupalcon in the target region.
DrupalCamps, code sprints, and even Drupalcons are hard to hold without sponsors. It's important that sponsors are given a good value for their money or they will not sponsor future events. There are many ways to provide value to sponsors. The goal of this page is to come up with a list of many of these ways.
There is also a lot of great information about organizing events and handling sponsorship money on the DrupalCamp Organizing Guide.Read more
Some of you may have noticed that Drupal Day Milan had a picture announcement on drupal.org. The advert was placed in the upper left corner of drupal.org's frontpage is the same place you see "Drupal Security", "Drupalcon D.C"
and other "ads".

Over in the DrupalCampUK event planning thread started by Galooph, Richardcanoe mentioned:
"There are lots of Apache - MySQL - PHP implementations out there now for both windows & MacOS which are designed to be hosted on a USB stick.
Attendees could have a drupal on a stick as something to use at a DrupalCamp, but also to take away and play with. This would enable non tech users to get to grips wth the look and feel and test modules and settings.
