Those are some real early birds you've got there.  A full four days to
consider it.

By which, I take it that you mean utterly disorganised.  I've been
following the web site occasionally for about six months now (since the
time it was announced as the YAPC::AU conference) and haven't been able
to find a scrap of extra information about what to expect from it.

Why would you bother?  What is actually happening?  Or is it some great
secret that needs to be concealed behind a few comic strips to save us
from ruining the surprise?

I'm on holiday anyway, but I have to say that I was surprised that the
conference was even going ahead given the lack of any apparent
organisation or programme.

You can call me a cynic, but I think that more people would be inclined
to part with the money if they knew anything about what they might get
for it.
