I am also at Google now, so if you like, I could
at least let it be known of
the possibility; I have no idea of whether it would be possible, or
advisable, to get Google support or space for this. Any feedback?
I've organized several events hosted by Google through Leslie
Hawthorn, who's great and is a friend of our community. (She's been to
several RCCs.) The experience has been great, but it has the same
problems as the others listed: size (probably can't host a 1,000
person gathering), proximity to housing, transportation, etc.
It sounds like Berkeley is the best bet so far. Phoebe, have you
investigated other local universities?
Not really! Other than that they exist :)
And Berkeley may not be ideal either, we'd have to check about
classroom and auditorium size/availability. I recall there were
several options through the various schools.
Wikimania or no, this conversation is also a great preliminary to
hosting a smaller (let's say 100-150 ppl), more informal weekend
