Toronto: High-Turnout for Tech Events?

I was interested to learn that both Joel Spolsky, on the FogBugz World Tour and Mike Chambers at Adobe's On AIR Bus Tour said that their Toronto stops had one of the highest (if not, in fact, the highest) turnouts.

To be fair, Mike Chambers did check the numbers and said that Toronto wasn't the highest turnout, just close.

Still -- this is good news. It means that Toronto's a good place to have technology events, conferences, and the like. If we're willing to turn out en masse to hear vendors pitch their products, imagine how many people would show up for something actually interesting. Although we've got Agile 2007 headed our way next year, I'd like to see more conferences make a showing here.

And, no, NFJS, out by the airport doesn't really count.
