    I like how last year some fiolks just wrote the room number on your arm with a sharpie as you walked by.

    I am also toying with a calendar idea to help scheduling specific timing of events, parties, etc ... that way folks can have a cheat sheet for what's happening when and what they have to miss out on to make it to the particularly cooler thing they'd rather go to.

    could be useful for coordinating parties and whatnot... but something tells me that this summer we'll be using the time-tested method that one experiences at every other con... random, half-intelligible cel phone calls that criss-cross every member of one's circle of friends in an effort to find out where the party is, who is eating at what restaraunt before hand, and what's happening later.

    always consider the "times three duration factor" and the "times two connection factor" during these planning calls. specifically, if you have a dozen people trying to coordinate a party that's going to last an hour long, figure that it will take a minimum of 24 phone calls over the course of three hours to establish these plans. additional time and effort is often required due to dropped calls, garbled voicemail messages, and intoxication.

    i'm reminded of virosa's comment in the lobby of the marriot weeks ago during shmoocon concerning attempts to get more than 10 hackers to walk in the same direction at the same time on the way to dinner or drinks... "it's like herding cats."

    Apologize in advance if this has been covered before, I looked but saw nothing.

    I'm wondering seeing as the Alexis was so open, that it was fairly easy to figure out where all the collectives were. With the layout of the Riviera so closed off, and not very conducive to open communications. If we wanted to have a placard listing the different room numbers of the various individuals.

    Participation in this would not be manditory. If a person didn't want to give up the room number they wouldn't have to.

    We could place a placard in the lobby and maybe have some kind of a PHP web thingy or someplace you could finger for the information online.

    This way, I know dis.org is in room3803
