I never threw them away. There still on my desk (which I am away from for the weekend).

    If you like, I can make copies and send them to you (or someone) where they can be

    • It would be nice to have the tutorial handouts on the web, but there are some issues with that. First, people who attended those sessions had to pay extra for each half-day tutorial. Second, some of the presenters teach/taught those classes for their livelihood. That's not to say that these issues can't be resolved, just that there's a legitimate reason to hold off (at least four or five years. :-)

      What I'd like to see preserved are things like the CFP, the program and schedule, the refereed papers, news and reports from the event, photos and the like. There aren't any drawbacks to putting those materials online, and in fact there's probably a big incentive to maintain them.


      I don't want to sound like I'm harping on O'Reilly about this one; other conference organizers (IDG, CMP, YAS) are also just as bad. Somehow, I don't find their events to be as important as TPC/OSCon. :-)
