At MAX 2008 in San Francisco, we announced the date and venue for MAX 2009. Lots of you have been asking about plans for Europe this year, and we were unable to respond while we went over the numbers to try and make things work. Unfortunately, MAX Europe 2009 has fallen victim to the economic downturn. This has been an excruciating decision to have to make. MAX Europe in 2007 and 2008 were great events, and we hope to host MAX in Europe once again in the future, but there will be no MAX in Europe in 2009. That’s the bad news. The good news is that we are going to make more of the MAX experience available online, making far more content available to a far bigger audience and doing so far quicker, too. Ted Patrick has posted some thoughts on the MAX blog.
