Use of the term "spectacle" is being thrown around to belittle those organizing it, and i find it borderline offensive. Personally I don't see this as a "spectacle". It's an important announcement being given the high profile it deserves. In fact, I'd expect nothing less.
i  understand where Serge is coming from, but i think he has less 
exposure to the
art of marketing than i do.

i think SOTM is an excellent venue for this announcement. it's just sound
marketing practice.
