"It is with much regret and disappointment that I must announce that the Haiku project have decided to cancel WalterCon 2007 for lack of community interest. Those who have already registered will have all money refunded.
The perceived reason for this would be late announcement combined with the community being spread across the globe. Efforts are already under way to prevent such problems stemming from last-minute planning and to make WalterCon not only a success, but a hit.
On a more positive note, Michael Phipps has been invited to speak at the upcoming LinuxWorld conference. This is an excellent opportunity for exposure for Haiku both as a project and as a community."
