I agree with your point of view. However, if we do not allocate
in APAC regional budget, then either we have to convince Flock
organizers to include APAC or no one from APAC gets to go to Flock.
Keeping that in mind, I think, until we are able to convince and get a
confirmation that APAC will get a funding from Flock budget, we should
have some provisions from regional budget.
The "convince Flock organizers to include APAC" is the sticky bit IMO
- why does it have to be that way? Like I said, if Flock organizers
don't see value in a session because it's not from NA/EMEA then it is
discriminatory and it should be called out. If they don't see value
in the session because they deem it uninteresting for a general
audience but if APAC thinks it is important that it be present, then
we could fund it. I no longer see the point of earmarking some funds
to support an already fat Flock budget just for the sake of it.
