Emerging Irony

Here’s the registration form for O’Reilly’s Emerging Technology Conference. If you’re a student, you get a 65% discount, but only with “proof of status, a copy of ID & class schedule”. Fair enough, but you have to fax the details to O’Reilly in the US. I just find the necessity for faxing information for an emerging technology conference somewhat antiquated. Maybe they should do what Microsoft did with their Student Options site and require Athens or something to check status (I don’t know what system is used in the US).
While I’d love to go, even with a student discount it’s going to be very expensive even without considering flights and accommodation. I just hope NotCon is running again this year.
incidentally if you use the code ‘et05bb’ you get a 5% discount, courtesy of BoingBoing.
