HI Marije,
   What's the 'TU Berlin'?

   Maybe those involved in this don't understand how little some of us
(ME!!!) know about how this all gets set up.

   Anyway, I have no say in this and probably never will until I get
rich. Germany is a long, long way from California so travel costs are
prohibitive. Being that Linux Audio is world wide it's going to be
that way for lots of people no matter where it's held.

   I think the folks who set this one up for the last 5 years should
be able to have it where they want. Cheers to them and ZKM for all
their efforts over the years.

   Maybe, if there was enough interest, there should be some thought
towards doing conferences like this on more than one continent each
year? LAC-Europe, but also LAC-Buffalo, LAC-Panda, LAC-Kangaroo, etc.?
