You know an event is well loved when it dies, but won't stay dead.  Etel is one such event.  Lee Dryburgh grabbed the bull by the horns after Etel 2008 died, promptly started a movement to launch an EComm 2008 event, and now has significant backing from the (former) Etel community, plus a nicely growing Facebook group to accompany it. 

The EComm Event (humorously dubbed ETel Uncancelled) will take place March 12, somewhere in Silicon Valley.  Location hasn't been announced yet.
