Would it be possible to hold WhereCamp the weekend before Where 2.0? My
thought it that Memorial Day weekend may be a problem for some people.
Travel and hotel costs may be slightly higher and those with kids or loved
ones with the day off may want to spend time with them.
Also, are there space/accommodation requirements for where WhereCamp is
held? I know at Google last year they feed us, gave us tents and cool
places to hang out. Is all of that required by one sponsor or is there a
possibility that those responsibilities could be divided among a few groups.
Further expanding on this thought - perhaps NASA Ames could provide us with
the space to meet but then some other group could sponsor food and goodies.

Hey rockstar peeps,
Ryan Sarver and I are looking around for space for WhereCamp 2009 San
Francisco - which looks like it will be on May 23rd and 24th 2009
since Where 2.0 is May 21st onwards :
Memorial Day of course is on May 25th. We think that this won't affect
our crowd very much but if you have any thoughts about this please
We do have some choice in good spaces where we could go; notably the
awesome venues we've used before such as the Yahoo Campus - but it
just seems fair to let everybody have their say.
If you have any thoughts please dm me.
Also of course we'll be looking for sponsorship - please sponsor if you can.
Other WhereCamp's that I know of coming up include WhereCampAfrica (in
April 2009 I believe ) and WhereCampPDX ( in September 2009 ) - these
folks will be twittering as well into the main channel so keep your
eyes on the twitternets :
