My first recommendation to Haiku back in 2006 was to move WC to Europe. The
answer was a resounding "no way"; but as it turns out, the inevitable is
happening (the demographics are overwhelming).

For all intent and purposes, BG is the de facto Haiku conference, and I
don't think that will change that, at least not for the foreseeable future,
if ever.

WC could come back to life as the US-based conference, but only to the
extent that the community in this part of the world shows interest in making
it happen; if there is indifference, then it will not happen.
