Since this is looking to be the best attended YAPC::NA ever (or in a long 
time?) I think it'd be great if you and the team could document some of 
what you did, _especially_ in regards to advertising.

In general, I wish conference organizers would do a better job of 
documenting what they did, since organization duties rotate to new people 
every year. I know this is tough, since before the conference you're busy 
and after you're exhausted, but it would be incredibly useful.
