OSCON is run by paid professionals whose job is to run OSCON. They have sponsors giving dollar amounts that would cover an entire YAPC (several YAPCs, in fact, if you use the 2008 prospectus as a guide). It's just a totally different scale of event.
Since it's the other US conference that YAPC::NA speakers are most
likely to be submitting talks to, it seems highly relevant to me.
The CFP went out at the beginning of January and I saw it about 20
times on different mailing lists, blogs, and Perl news sources. The
organizers did a good job promoting it, and gave plenty of advance
notice. I don't care whether the deadline is extended or not, but the
criticism of JT is unfounded.
