An aside but on the topic of selecting locations: I think it's worth
considering where the conference has been recently when selecting the next
year's location. It gives people from all over the country a chance to
attend C4L and become part of our community if the annual conference jumps
around. While I haven't read both proposals or decided which I'll vote for,
it would be great to return East to Philly rather than have it on the West
Coast again, and then the year after look towards a non-coastal spot. I say
this even being in California and very much valuing cheaper and shorter
flights.

I know I expressed my desire for a West Coast => East Coast => Middle
America rhythm to conference locations to a few people in Portland. Just
reiterating here for the list's sake.

Best,
Eric
