when i learned about it a while back it was still a rumor and not

it is interesting that allison recounts the locations of oscon but not
the first two years of tpc which were in san jose (but held inside the
fairmont hotel in the center).

they have used the name 'tpc' under the bigger oscon umbrella. at least
they have done that but i am not sure if they continue to do so. but
oscon is the direct descendent of tpc (which was o'reilly's first
conference and so the origin of their conference megabusiness).
