Dear Friends,

The postings on this thread by Wendel Swan and Alberto Boralevi have given me, and I suspect many others, their first look at the matter of conference finances. I doubt that anyone has been getting very rich from them, there just isn't that much money involved. ICOC's 500 attendees, for example, only generate $200,000 in registration fees if every one of them pays $400.

On the other hand, ICOC has consistently maintained secrecy around the workings of the conference, and secrecy inevitably breeds suspicions that there is something to hide. A more open system would, in my opinion, be to everyone's benefit.
