Kabe, Gavin, Gurcharan, Hubert, and anyone else:

Our NLM node will be up present in the Motorola Labs venue tomorrow.  We
plan to be there most of the day with nothing formal planned.  Some kids may
show up here or they may not.  We're just going to announce this today.

Gavin, Gurcharan,
Thanks for following up with this, I would say we should reserve a venue and
meet there.  

Unfortunately, I do not have multicast connectivity, so I will need a bridge
set up.
(BTW, we are still running AG 1.x)
We have a schedule at Motorola for kids day, therefore we will have kids
from 10:00-11:00 cst.

Does 10:00 cst work for you?  Please advise and I will reserve a venue.

So where are we on this?  Should we all just plan to be in the lobby with
sound on, or should we schedule a venue?
