    No that remark was posted towards me and I have already emailed Nikita at her dc email.

    So please do not overload her with emails, she's busy enough as it is and the last thing we want is to send her over the edge of sanity.

    It comes in bottles, usually glass. Often regarded as "bring your own".

    Nikita,

    Too open an environment may make it hard to meet/talk with forum people, with all the 'extras' milling around- not that I care, but I'd like to meet the people I actually talk to here...

    I for one would be all for poolside, I'd think it would definitely be a more open environment than a Capri room.

    I'm okay with any room you can get us in before the start of the summit but not too early for folks that would be attending the TBBQ (Like myself, because I can't be in two places at one time yet.) Or....

    There is also the idea of skipping the rooms all together and having the meet poolside at a specific time on Thursday or Friday night. This can be published and advertised and it leaves you will benefiting from the poolside DJ and an open space. You can also use it as a meeting place to join up with cool people before you all head off to parties together and some people can stay and discuss The Cot Mans long posting style and Chris's drinking problem. :-P
    I'd go for this too; as I think it would be more open and maybe just maybe Chris & others would be more able to stop by.

    Anyone else want to add thoughts to this? HighWiz, Chris, anyone.....

    Re: Time for Everyone To Tell Me What They Think

    OK I have a problem and I only have a few days to fix it so let's discuss. When the top of the rive became available my immediate thoughts were great, lets throw a party make it the forum meet and have someone watch a donation table. Then there was interest in the The Summit being reborn under a new and temporary organizer until next year.

    1.) Someone/Group has been in contact with me to hold the summit at the top of the riv. To benefit the EFF, just as it has in years past. More details will be posted at a later date. I had originally suggested that these two events merge because they are both social events and should have a great space.However...The EFF Summit takes donations at the door as a cover charge. This IS VERY worth it and does a great service to the community. IF we hold the forum meet at the top of the Riv as well, how do we work around that?

    2.) Holding the forum meet pre-summit in the same place leaves the obvious problems: a.) Too early and people are still at the BBQ. b.) Those attendees for the forum meet will be getting in without donation, and since it is not an invite only party that means the invitation is open to the whole conference.

    3.) So far the best day and time for holding this meeting is Thursday Night.(seems to be the vote so far ) Finding a good space on Friday is going to be difficult. However not entirely impossible, just difficult. Since the summit meet is back on, what time would you like it on thursday as I will attempt to get you a capri room and bring down the WMD on anyone who attempts to overbook it.

    Given that and given that Chris stops whining and get's over it and drags his drunk butt to the meet anyways, What would you have me do, what are YOUR suggestions?

    PS @Voltage Spike, never think you are too small for something bigger, it's just plain crazy talk & you're going to sell yourself and or others short.

    Second, EFF donation box. I am for it only if it's set out and left. i don't like the idea of making people feel like they HAVE to donate in order to attend. I guess I lean toward thinking that there are enough EFF donation opportunities at DEF CON that if people want to donate, they can.
    That's what I had mind. I'm not for badgering (unless I'm at work then that's another story) people or making anyone feel like they have to do something so I was hoping we could set up a box on a table with a sign and go from there.

    Also, what would guys think about maybe having a donation box for the EFF at the Forums Meet? With the Summit a no-go this year, I'd like to see if we could help make up what the Summit might have brought in for the EFF guys.
    Heh...first, Thursday night...not that this should have ANY impact on scheduling...but I would say there is somewhere around a 99% chance that I won't be able to make the forum meet Thrusday night.
