The Events team decided that due to the popularity of the offer, it should be open longer. So, you have more time to get your session idea submitted and more time to shamelessly promote it on your blog and on Twitter 🙂
This will also give us a chance to deploy some changes to help with session filtering. Right now, Rich and Anthony are neck-deep upgrading Connect. So, we’ve not had a chance to address the problem.
Update: Rich just raised the number of sessions displayed in the Latest page and syndicated through the Latest RSS feed to 50. So, you can see a lot more below the fold on Mix, or if you’re using Topper’s voting widget, you’ll get a lot more ideas to randomize.
Stay tuned for another OpenWorld announcement tomorrow.
