Uhh yeah... O.k. then I want CMD to have a big splash across the screen,
let's not forget EDB and Truviso. :P

Seriously though, I wasn't suggesting we not list OSCON or PGCON, but
they can be listed in events and news and they can blog and we can grab
their feeds, we don't need to give them "special" attention.

Special attention should be limited specifically to community. That is
how you are going to drive a larger community, by reinforcing the
community itself. Not by becoming advertising space.
