IMO it's not; the difference is one of focus, more specifically is there
one or a small number of specific projects or is there a larger slate of
things that one can pick and choose from and which may well change their
form based on participation *plus* unorganized gatherings
(socialization/"hallway track"). My "hacker-con" take on the second form
implicitly recognizes that the "hallway track" may well be as continuous as
it is at many other conventions....
