It's kind of a cute idea, but frankly I don't think I'd bother. I took a great deal away from listening to Elian and chromatic talk at YAPC::NA last year—but I also took a great deal from having breakfast with chip and dinner with Erudil and the andreycheks, and talking over the closing keynote with Util, and those parts wouldn't translate very well to a strictly distributed format.

    Yeah, it's kind of the same thing "home-schooled children" go thru. They still like to get together at dances, parties, and sporting events. But I'm old now, can't score unless I pay for it, don't like dressing up, and don't like travelling. To me, telecommuting is more appealing. I'll bet there is a separation with age, in who would and would-not not televised conferences.

[Corion]: ... "changed"
[Corion]: I usually expect fixed header names, but am sometimes lenient in the order of columns. But changing the report titles often sounds to me as if you are not the sole consument of the export ;)
[shmem]: perldigious: as always - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Ther must be a very compelling reason for changing column names in a database. Those are rare.
[Corion]: If you have whitespace in the column names in the database, whap the DBAs ;)
[shmem]: It's common for some vendors to have column names such as WRSTVG or some other such whizzbang, and another table where these names are mapped to something meaningful depending on how you look at the data
