Should I go to UX Intensive or Cooper's UX Bootcamp?

These are both big money items.

Trying to decide which one of these to do.

Funding drive - start with the job board?

An idea for generating revenue. I remember being told that the majority of the jobs seen on the IxDA job board come from Coroflot thus are not jobs that have generated posting revenue for IxDA. The idea of paying for jobs is not a bad one but why not do the following:

1) Remove the connection with Coroflot entirely. Do Interaction designers really want to scroll through jobs for handbag designers and product developers to find their ideal job (bear in mind the existence now of several free to post UX specific job boards)?

2) Reduce the fee to make posting more attractive
