I think we're down to some real questions here. One question is certainly, "Who will this journal serve?" (which has already been asked, but I don't know if we've gotten consensus on it). I think a more important question, however, is "What is it about Code4Lib that attracts you/makes you desire a published output of it?" We had ~85 people in Corvallis (at various times). What peaked their interest? Was it the "established community"? The potential of meeting with like minded geeks? The hope for a professional organization that speaks their language? The question of "what is your perception of 'Code4Lib'?" needs to be addressed. I guess since I raise the question, I should be the first to answer. I view Code4Lib as an informal community of developers that combine wits to solve real and perceived problems happening in libraries. I like its lack of "professional tone" - it was less intimidating to participate that way. I also note that I didn't start thinking of Code4Lib as "community" until I entered the IRC channel. The mailing list didn't instill me with that connection (although I still found it useful). I don't think #code4lib == Code4Lib, but I'm not sure you'd see the current energy around the community without it. -Ross.
