Walt Mossberg's Famed "D Conference" No Longer at the Four Seasons Resort Aviara

Walt Mossberg's upcoming annual "D Conference" -- which attracts the biggest names in media an technology -- has switched locations at the last minute.  Well, kinda' sorta', and maybe.  

D7 (this year's model) is scheduled to take place at the end of this month at its usual venue -- the Four Seasons Resort Aviara in Carlsbad, California (here in my home town of San Diego).  But, breaking news -- the resort's owners have just fired the Four Seasons management company.  And, the resort is reported to be handed over to new management, Dolce Hotels and Resorts.  No word on whether this change-over has already been implemented.  

So, don't be confused.  Same location, same great conference (bar none, the best conference I have ever attended).  New attitude.
