    • I did, too. I though for sure that the talk about Bricolage would be accepted. :-(

      • Ooh, ooh, I got mine too! I've gotten used to having talks turned down, I'd probably have been more surprised to get accepted :)

          I had three proposals rejected too. The OSCon team had a serious overabundance of riches this year and had to turn down a very large number of excellent proposals. No-one should feel the least bit slighted if their talk wasn't accepted.

            Why, however, do I get the feeling that this was slightly less than the 100% suffered by a lot of folk I know?
            I know, I know - with 500-odd suggestions and only 100 places, it's a tough choice, and whatever you do, you're going to piss someone off.

              No, I didn't suffer the 100% rejection rate that others did. But I did suffer more than an 80% rejection rate. Which is still pretty tough, given my track record.

                What's that in real numbers? If I'd had the
                energy to submit as many proposals as I'd liked,
