(Bit of a shameless plug...)

I think smaller computer conventions can do quite well at the Oregon 
Convention Center. It's just a matter of picking the right rooms. We're 
holding the WebVisions 2003 event there on Friday, in Lobby 'B' and 
Meeting Room B113 - B116. I was just there with a couple of PTP members 
yesterday making a check for the wifi arrangements and was surprised at 
the amount of space we'll have, and very happy about the much higher 
ceilings than you get in a hotel cellar. :)

Here's the Plug: http://www.webvisionsevent.org  -> This Friday, 5+ 
speakers, and wrap party just $75. Something for everyone.
