I'm hoping we can still find some place downtown which is fairly
central for everyone to meet up at.  Paul's place has the space but is
a few miles from downtown.  Citizenspace has the space and location
but costs money.

There's the lightning talk option also which has seemed to be a good
mix - we've had success with that format a couple times.  If we
decided on that within the next week I'd say the chances are good of
getting a venue that we have used previously.
