$195 USD for four days of tremendous fun, to (re-)connect with other Drupal users and developers, to share information and to learn from the best Drupal developers and Drupal companies in the world. Heck, lunches and coffee are included in the price. All run by Drupalistas, for Drupalistas so it doesn't get much better than that. And in case there is a surplus from the fees and sponsors, the Drupal Association will use that money to gear up its activities in 2008.

Last week, we went to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center to inspect the rooms that have been allocated to us for DrupalCon Boston. As you can see from the video above, the venue is rather nice -- not to mention humongous. (In case you are wondering, that is Kieran Lal laughing in the background.)
Good news! The next Drupal conference (DrupalCon) will take place in Boston from March 3-6. If you want to learn more about Drupal, or if you want to capture and absorb the passion and enthusiasm behind the Drupal project, this is the place to be.
The last Drupal conference, DrupalCon Barcelona, was capped at 450 people and sold out so this time around, we're trying to accommodate 700 Drupal people. Yes, these numbers blow my mind.
In other words, DrupalCon Boston will bring together hundreds of Drupal users and developers from all around the world. Whether you are a Drupal professional or an enthusiastic user coming to find out more, you're invited to join us in Boston.
Furthermore, DrupalCon is being held at the same time/place as AIIM International Exposition & Conference, the largest content management technology conference in North America. The goal: introduce Drupal to thousands of potential new Drupalers.
Organizing a conference of this size obviously takes a lot of resources; if you are interested in being a sponsor, please get in touch. Kudos to the DrupalCon Boston team and the Drupal Association for taking on this massive amount of work. This is not something we should take for granted. Thanks!
Robert Garrigos from the Drupal Catalan user group just uploaded a video of the State of Drupal presentation that I gave at DrupalCon Barcelona 3 months ago. The presentation shares the results of a survey that I conducted in August; the survey ran for 30+ days, collected more than 1000 responses, and should do a pretty good job capturing the Drupal Zeitgeist.
Have a look at the video below (my presentation starts 12 minutes into the video) and/or download a copy of my slides (PDF, 14MB).
