Being an international project - and hopefully one that is ecologically 
friendly - it is to be expected that there WILL be more than one SOTM each 
year, organised on a more local basis.

Firebird has an international conference, but local events in - for example - 
Brazil and Japan are bigger than the 'international' event.

While is *IS* nice to put faces to the people we work with on line, what is 
much more important is a good cooperative network on line - something that I 
think is evolving nicely with OSM :)
