I'm writing in support of Brisbane's bid as the site 13 location for LCA 2010. 14 15 As a city, Brisbane has much to recommend in terms of parks and things to 16 see about town. There are several excellent coffee shops, as well, which is 17 a much if you're hosting a conference for hackers. The town also offers a 18 wide range of lodging options so that speakers and other VIPs who expect a 19 more upscale experience will be well served. The same observation is true in 20 the case of restaurants and pubs, offering a wide range of options for all 21 tastes and budgets. 22 23 However, as much as all the details made my visit to Brisbane fantastic, the 24 Open Source community members in the area were the real draw. Folks like 25 Elspeth Thorne, Stephen Thorne, Arjen Lentz, Andrew Eddie, plus the good 26 folks at Brisbane PHP, and the list goes on. Hosting in their 'home town' 27 ensures that all of your attendees will be welcomed with good conversation 28 with locals who are both knowledgeable and personable, 29 30 Cheers, 31 LH
