Due to there not being sufficient time left to get enough speakers lined up.

That is sad to hear and hopefully doesn't ruin to many plans. 
Maybe I'll be able to make it next year.

Also the front page dlang.org needs updated.

That is sad. But hopefully, I'll probably be able to participate in 2013.

Well, no matter where you pick, it's too far for someone.

The Astoria location enables us to keep the registration costs low, without 
compromising. It's a great location.

It's a fine location for me, but I live in Central California. I think that 
it's mostly people who are in places like Europe or Australia and who lack the 
time or money to make a trip that far who were unhappy with the location. And 
there's not much that we can do about that. Moving it to someplace else (e.g. 
somewhere in Europe) would just change who is having the problem. Every tech 
conference has the same problem.

How many we have / how many we want?

I don't consider myself a good speaker, but I could talk about D 
stuff anytime. For example, that "Modern COM in D" thingie I did, 
etc...

That would be good, but it won't be until sometime next year.

Essentially, we'll need a full, committed lineup of speakers 6 months in 
advance, enough for 3 days.

Agreed but Silicon Valley is a good choice. (Not because I live there. :))

There is a strong culture of groups having monthly meetings and 
companies donating venues. Arguably, almost any software person knows 
someone in Silicon Valley too, so lodging would be free and more 
comfortable for many.

That would not be as intimate as a meeting at Astoria but would attract 
more audience from many groups of people who are interested in D but not 
as much to fly to another state.
