Since I've already announced it on my blog (http://techno-viking.com/)
I may as well let this list know: I'm selling my house and moving into
a motorhome. I may be able to devote more time to organizing the
sprint in November.

Several years ago, a DD employed at one of the many Google local
offices offered the use of a Google meeting room (with excellent
network connectivity, video projector, etc.) for free-software
meetings. The request would go through the employee, who would need
to be present during the meeting. I'm not sure if that was a local
or global google policy, such things change over time, the DD in
question no longer works at that office, and I may be mis-remembering.
Google does employ several DDs and it may be worth enquiring if they
could make such an offer.
