O’Reilly first victim of the economy?

iPhoneLive might be the first event to fall victim of our troubled economy. They announced that the first iPhone Developer conference, has been postponed.

We’re sorry to announce that we’ve made the difficult business decision to postpone the O’Reilly iPhoneLive conference, which was to take place November 18 in San Jose.

We are grateful for the support of those who had agreed to participate in the event, particularly program co-chairs Raven Zachary and Bill Dudney, and sponsor Catapulley.

O’Reilly will continue to explore the mobile space, including the possibility for a future version of the conference.

I can’t say I’m super surprised. IIRC it wasn’t a very low cost event, couple that with the economy, and well…

Maybe Tom and I can do something about the lack of an iPhone developer conference ;)
