a bit -1 on that, a big driver for getting people to both “Barcamps (Summits in my case)

really helps with getting approval for travel etc. from various companies /employers.

A) I've been to apache barcamps not associated with other AC events.  I 
had no similar expectation that they are same physical location and I 
think your vision of this event is far grander than what I would best 
call a mini-AC.

B) Yes, the infancy-level suggestion is an event not at the same 
time/place as AC that Hadrian and I are trying to coordinate as a 
one-day event in the DC Metro area.
