That's some pricey Wedia

I’d been keeping my mouth shut thinking that I was just exceedingly cheap, but others are questioning the high price tag of next week’s We Media conference.

We’re at a stage where I can’t afford not to go; plus, I’ve got some other business in the Big Apple. But this was a big enough expense for a startup, that it took a long partners’ discussion before I finally bit the bullet and registered.

But I’d feel a lot better about it if The Media Center would transparently explain why a one-day conference with (mostly?) free speakers held at the offices of the Associated Press costs $695.
