Congrats on the great turnout! I definitely had a good time – thanks for everyone's hard work.

I'm confused, though: from the closing talk, I understood that attendance was _down_ a bit from last year, which I thought was ~8.5k matrix.org/blog/2021/01/04/tak

Was attendance actually way up, or am I misunderstanding?

@codesections the closing talk was prepared before we had those numbers and reflected more those from saturday πŸ˜‰ @matrix @fosdem

#FOSDEM2021 : over 33K attendees for #FOSDEM online ? does this challenge @fosdem to find a bigger place for next edition ? or community should be structured differently ? @ShinIce @matrix

@rzr @ShinIce @matrix
Larger venues are not possible, sure we could rent large event halls, but the cost of that would be eye watering expensive... We try to keep FOSDEM free as in beer...
We are thinking to continue a hybrid event in the future, more interaction online together with the physical event from things we learned this year next to streams offered.
Also should be noted that part of the people attended because it was online, they couldn't otherwise afford the travel or get a visa.
