There is an interesting post from eComm conference organizer Lee Dryburgh here. Now that the agenda for next week's conference is nailed down, Lee is considering whether the audience for future eComm events should also be subject to selection (as speakers are today).
From my perspective, eComm is always very special because almost all the speakers are interesting and the audience has been loaded with interesting people. Credit for the quality of the speakers goes to Lee. There is an eComm advisory board (to which I've occasionally contributed), but Lee is the driving force in creating the agenda full of great speakers.
If you are attending eComm next week, or have attended any eComm event, or have benefited from the rich eComm material available on the web (videos, more videos, audio, not to mention slides and photos at the "previous" tab here), you may wish to voice your opinion on open versus invitation-only.
Lee is looking for feedback here.
