Re: [NYC-rb] RailsConf vs. RubyConf

O'Reilly is not running RailsConf anymore, so that should make both
events more similar. Both are now being run directly by RubyCentral,
too, so I would expect them to be more similar because of that, too. I
think a lot of the (bigger, business-focus, etc) feel is from the
producing organization. I don't think O'Reilly does conferences unless
they think they can make them big, which takes away from the
experience, IMO.
