My suspicions:

1) Any given VCF is way too far away for the majority to attend.
2) Pictures and technical info on systems can be found on the 'net already.
3) Discussions (and banter) with system owners can be regularly be had here 

... hence for most people a VCF discussion just serves no purpose, unlike in 
the early days when it was something new and different to talk about (and 
hence popular discussion even amongst non-attendees)

I don't think there's anything wrong with the show(s), or with the list - it's 
just that now it's an 'old' concept there's less interest from the people who 
won't be / weren't there.

That's not to say that there's *no* interest of course, so I am surprised that 
there aren't more reports following a show given that it'd seem natural for a 
lot of people to want to tell a story of their experiences there.

Do the other two prefer Leslie Judd?
