To be honest, for those of us that don't have a business reason to
ignore distance as an issue (and companies will tend to trade off
number of people for money spent getting them there), this is a
general truth. The thing is that we're from all over- at this
meeting, 44 countries - so that argument doesn't help as much as it
used to. Once upon a time, the guideline I followed was that about
1/6 of the IETF was from Europe, a smattering was from elsewhere, and
the lion's share was from the US, so I scheduled a meeting every
other year in Europe, the odd one in random places, and the lion's
share in the US. Those statistics are essentially meaningless now.
