Smart-sourcing sounds good than just out-sourcing. It looks the conference could be something interesting. If I were in US, probably I will consider to attend. However, I don't own a company(at least for now) and I guess it's not meant for me?

Anyway, I do believe outsourcing or maybe you call it smart-sourcing has to be managed correctly. If not, you can hurt the company instead of helping.
