For right now, the organization and planning for FUDCons is highly
centralized. This means that we can only hold so many, and in that
context, I think that numbering sequentially continues to make the most
Now, if this concept evolves in a scalable way, and if we should become
capable of putting on many FUDCons over a geographically dispersed area --
and honestly, the prospect of "franchising" FUDCons is *very* interesting
to me -- then I think you're absolutely right.
And what do I mean by "franchising" FUDCon? Maybe a good deliverable of
this group is the "Guide to holding your own FUDCon", with a repository of
canned presentations that clueful people can deliver to fill out a show,
and this group acting as the advisory board to folks who want to do that.
