This is all so asinine it sounds like it’s run by a random haughty social club of people far detached from systems and UNIX and especially far from publishing systems papers that actually advance the art. Sometimes it is necessary to let an org know it’s become a joke.  I’d prefer to attend and assist with something not affiliated with Usenix after reading this thread.

Unsenix stopped being Usenix when they rode SAGE into the ground and
chased out all the sysadmins.  I appreciate the efforts of a lot of
people there to keep the flag up, but I've never understood the decision
to try to become ACM Lite (pastes great, less filling). 

I'm super interested in what Bell Labs has planned, and anything
happening at the Living Computer Museum as well.  Maybe if we ask nicely
they'll let us play with the Blit!
