[Yapc-na-organizers] Corporate Pricing

I think someone needs to do a post-mortem of the past few YAPCs and 
explain what the problem is and why some are suggesting changes.  My 
understanding is that YAPC attendance has been consistently increasing, 
so attracing attendees is probably not the problem.

One problem we had in our Boston.pm bids has been that the venue costs 
more.  Increasing the cost would help cities like Boston/Cambridge to 
compete in YAPC bids.  Other areas where more revenue might help could 
be providing more financial support to presenters and/or recording 

Personally, I suspect there are a lot of other ways to improve the 
conference.  Soliciting, collecting, and analyzing feedback from 
attendees and potential attendees might be a fruitful thing to do. 
Sharing what you have already learned here would be a first step.  We 
should focus on what content will be valuable to potential attendees 
before considering any change in pricing structure.
