Too much Triviality[edit]

I think the article includes too much triviality:


  • Like other conferences, OOPSLA offers various tracks and many simultaneous sessions, and thus has different meaning to different people.


If a sentence starts with "like other conferences", then this information is redundant.


  • It is more academic than some conferences, with doctoral students presenting papers for credit, and less academic than others.


Is this true? Is this interesting?


I've never heared that doctoral students get credit for presenting papers at OOPLSA


  • OOPSLA’s venue changes every year, and the categories of its program vary.


This is true for almost all conferences. Hence, there is no need to mention this.


  • Historically OOPSLA has combined the presentation of academic papers with comparatively practical experience reports, panels, workshops and tutorials.


This is also true for almost all conferences.


  • OOPSLA helped object-oriented programming develop into what is now mainstream programming


I can't imagine that OOPSLA helped OO development to become mainstream. If this is true, then please add this information also to the OOP article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object-Oriented_Programming
