We just announced on our Research Blog that we're holding the second scalability conference in Seattle on Saturday, June 14. We had a hunch we weren't the only ones who liked to sit around and brainstorm solutions for hard problems, and it turns out we were right. We met so many great people at the 2007 gathering that we've decided to do it again.

If you work with scalable systems and would like to give a presentation at this year's conference, we'd love to hear from you. Visit our Research blog for more details on how to submit a proposal.
