Man, I thought we had our act together this year, too. :)
John, you make an excellent point that we do have a goal date for
registration and we simply forgot to put it on code4lib website. Thanks to
others for making edits!
Our goal date to open registration is January 13. We we been intending to
send a more formal announcement of the exact date shortly after
Thanksgiving, with multiple reminders again after the Christmas holidays.
That being said, don't mark your calendar quite yet, as we are still
working on an A/V proposal so we can finalize our budget and registration
cost. We want to be firm on that before we start talking concretely about

Thank you for the offer, and I didn't know that was how things operated, but in this case I don't think I could have done much to help (since I don't have access to the information). However, it seems like some of you guys DO have that information, and here I am saying "What up?"
