Not only has the call for papers been extended, so has the early bird rate of $175 (approximately $1,000 less than OSCON).

Here is a fun graph we can all relate to that shows paper submissions over time with the expected spike right at the deadline–now extended until April 10, 2009.

Looking at the full list of proposals it doesn’t appear that the organizers extended the deadline because of a shortage of proposals either.  Still, the more proposals the better so get yours in now!
