Despite the anger that @

has stirred up I'm just happy that it all shows that people care!

I'm sorry you got pushed on a back foot by it all, Martin. I think it's a damage limitation exercise for them now, as they really don't come across as people who understand "uniconferences" or social networks at all. I used to think they were the more reasonable end of SEO, but now I see their whole business and psychology is centered around the self, and pushing anything out that disagrees. -
Mindy's writing style is certainly one that grabs attention (Alex Kapranos himself was moved to reply to a negative review she wrote about a Franz Ferdinand gig). Having read a lot of her stuff before, the fiery language didn't bother or surprise me. The fundamental problem with her argument is that the very nature of an Unconference means it's *not* the thing she's looking for. We should maybe offer some more diversity of the types of events we hold (i.e., not always an Unconference) as there are lots of other interesting ways to share information but I'd hope that if she attended a few
events she'd 'get' it's strengths and enjoy it. -
