Hey guess what? "RubyConf 2007":http://rubycentral.org/news/2007/05/01/rubyconf-2007/ is going to be in Charlotte, NC this year. November 2-4. We'll have a new page up at "http://rubyconf.org":http://rubyconf.org soon on which you can focus all of your obsessive energies as you wait for registration to open. We're going to be able to fit a few more people in this year, but it's impossible to know how Ruby's continued growth will affect attendance. Ruby hackers, start getting those talk ideas ready. We'll open up a call for proposals soonish as well.
