Stardust is giving unemployed tech

Stardust is giving unemployed tech workers free passes to their Content Networking Event in December. In my opinion, this type of thing should be standard for conferences in the tech/Internet industry. Low entry fees for the unemployed (~$50 to cover basic processing costs, etc.), higher fees for folks who are self-employed or work for non-profits (~$200-300), and full price for those attending on behalf of a corporation (~$1500). Of course, I also think that $1500 for a conference is outrageous…the best conferences I’ve been to haven’t been worth even a 1/4 of that.
