I like the idea of a code4lib conference franchise similar to
THATCamp: http://thatcamp.org/. I happen to know that Amanda French,
THATCamp Coordinator, is interested in talking with the code4lib
coordinators about the distributed conference model. Her expertise on
the subject would be enlightening. If you're interested, she can be
contacted at [log in to unmask]

> 0:  I've only been to code4lib twice (the first one and the last one).  I'm not sure how much of an issue institutional diversity is.  Local places are always going to want to send more because it is a cheaper event.  And as someone from a larger institution, I have some bias. (and all of the UC is legally one institution for that matter, so would it be by UC campus?  UC department?  Each individual library?).  I guess as long as the cap were high enough (higher than 2, maybe 5 or 10) this would probably be okay.  I don't think this gets you that much as far as opening up more spots.
