Were you invited?

Here's the list of invitees, username "enter" password "thelobby".
However, the format seems really interesting. "No panels, no keynotes," which is 2/3 of the disclaimers for BloggerCon (we also featured no audience).
It's a good idea. I'd throw in a few of the Hypercamp ideas as well, but (of course) I wasn't invited (nor would I go to such an exclusive event).
Frankly, I doubt if they needed to make it invite-only with the steep price and long distance (Big Island of Hawaii). The exclusiveness and publishing the invite list is more of a marketing thing, and more than a little unfair to use people's names without their permission, if in fact they didn't have their permission.
Of course you have to look to see if you were invited. Or to see who's cool enough to be invited. Any surprise omissions? Post a comment.
I'm off to Gordon Biersch for dinner with a bunch of nerds who invited themselves. Heh.
