ALA is pretty different than Evolt, in terms of pushing the 
boundaries of structural markup + CSS... though it would be nice to 
see Evolt get a bit more credit for it's particular approach.  (I 
find the accesskey particularly enchanting.)


There's another factor to it which is the art/design following 
Zeldman has.  Also, certain web personalities hang out at the same 
conferences.  They do the mutual linking thing, which we could do as 

There have been some vehement objections to "link-whoring" in the 
past...  (objections I don't agree with, but objections nonetheless. 
Are there still objections?)

I think it would be neat-o if Evolt reps did some of the conference 
circuit one day.  We could do it if we wanted to.  We could promote 
Evolt and schmooze simultaneously.

The mutual flow of love would lead naturally to mutual flow of links.
