Google I/O - any success at registering?

Google I/O - any success at registering?

Did anyone on this get a ticket?

One colleague who got permission to attend tried, but failed, to get one. 

I wonder how long it took to sell out this year?

it looks like Carson had issues with Google Wallet not responding within 
the time limit, too.

:-(

I think google has to do something better next year, because when really 
good engineers get bumped because there's not enough room…

It wasn't quite an issue of there not being enough room, but an issue of
the ticketing system failing under load. I managed to get a ticket, but
could not pay with Google wallet because the registration system did not
correctly listen for Wallet's callback. It was a frustrating experience to
say the least.
