From the PDX.rb announcement: "Several of us in Portland got into OSCON free the last couple of years by volunteering. When we found out that there would be no volunteer opportunities this year we decided to see if any of the Ruby speakers would like to ?practice? their OSCON talks on us local Rubyists ? thus FOSCON (or as Lennon calls it: OSCANT) was born."
