What WordCamp Could Learn from Waffle House
Well, tickets went on sale for WordCamp Atlanta 2015 and sold out in about three hours, which was an hour less than last year. If you didn't get your ticket, tough luck. There's all kinds of explanation on the website about why it isn't any bigger due to venue limitations, cost, etc. I think WordCamp needs to learn a lesson from Waffle House. If there's more demand than a Waffle House can accomodate, instead of building a bigger Waffle House, they build another on the other side of the road. The Waffle House is a well-oiled machine for their floor footprint, storage, staffing, etc. So instead of re-engineering a larger one, they just build more. I think WordCamp should go to both a Spring and a Fall WordCamp in Atlanta to satisfy the demand. Or maybe three per year, if that goes well. Instead of going big, which they don't want to do, they should go broad. What say ye?
TL;DR: If you can't build bigger, build more.

Sugar CRM Group Re-Lanuch
The local Sugar CRM community has had an on-again, off-again series of meetups over the years. Looks like it's on agian. See their Meetup Page. I have mixed feelings about Sugar's Open Source commitment, but here's hoping they get things going again.
