The point of a conference is not only to show; but to learn, collaborate and discuss. You don't need to present to either get something out of it personally; provide some insight to someone who is presenting; or shoot-the-breeze with people about the tablets and what they can do and where they are going.

The summit will be exponentially more useful and valuable (to me at least) the more attendees there are. Presentations, BoFs and lightning sessions will be fun; but I don't want to go there and just:

a) talk to the people I talk to on IRC all the time
b) talk to other developers.

I want to learn from people I've not heard in the past!

So, please - both of you (and anyone else wondering if they should go) - reconsider your "something to contribute" and realise that your mere presence will enrich the experience for everyone.

20 developers sat in a room can be awfully lonely, but it will make buying rounds of beer cheaper ;-)

I share the surprise. In fact that list is of people that have written more than 1000 posts ın these forums. 1000 posts or more! And you say you have nothıng to contrıbute?

Just register, get your travel sorted out, follow the activity pre-summit and see you in Berlin!

(Alright, being a minor doesn't help, indeed. There will be chances in the future.)

I'm planning to attend but maybe I can attend with a HD camcorder and video everything for the community? Is that a useful contribution?

Great! I'll email you. I have to try to arrange a few things (locations, maybe interviewee's, anything you'd like to see recorded, e.t.c).

I think there is a lot of interest in the Maemo summit but there's a lot of people who can't attend. This way they can get the information along with the 'feel' for the event and hopefully drum up even more support for the second Maemo summit.

No need for private emails. Organization via wiki is the best, so other can provide additional ideas and help. Thanks!

Also remember to register, so everybody know who is going. I have got already emails from people confirming that they will go but still haven't registered. Please!

I've already registered and yes, the wiki would be the best place to arrange this. Thanks.
