Speaking of where the Forum is headed, it seems to me that the trend is to make as many new Forums in as many new locations as possible. Organising committees are pretty autonomous. If you look at the multiple new social forums that have popped up - in addition to the regional ones we've seen in the past - you start to smell the fair trade coffee.
