*World Domination Summit: Final Ticket Sales*
Earlier this morning we opened the final wave of ticket sales for WDS 2012. We sold out all 400 remaining tickets immediately (well, in 9 minutes), but due to various transaction errors, about 80 tickets were put back in the queue.
These tickets are now available on a first-come, first served basis here –>
UPDATE: All tickets are now gone.
Here are a few answers to questions I’ve received:
Can you stream the event online for those who can’t come? No, sorry. I love the internet, but #WDS is all about being together in one place.
Do you have any scholarships? No, sorry. WDS costs less than almost any other weekend event, and we don’t make any money from it. In fact, last year I lost more than $25,000 on it—this isn’t about us making a profit, and it costs a lot to put everything together.
Can I be a speaker? Our main-stage speaking roles are finalized—not all are announced yet, but they’re all selected. All registered attendees are welcome to submit proposals for workshops and breakout sessions, which will be expanded this year. We’ll have a process for this after finalizing the registration.
Can I be a volunteer? We will indeed have a crew of “Ambassadors” to work during the weekend. These volunteers must be Portland-based, and we’ll have an application process in March 2012. (FYI, everyone on the action team that produces WDS is a volunteer too—no one is paid, including me.)
