- I didn't find a terminal room, but instead a giant 'break room'
for ad-hoc meetings and food breaks. This was wonderful, and
about time! 802.11 has thankfully made the terminal room obsolete.
I want this format every time. Please consider 2 enhancements:
- A/C around the perimeter for laptop power
- beverages available (at least pitchers of water) all day
There actually was a terminal room, hidden around the corner to the left as
you walked away from registration. I went there exactly twice, to pick up
printouts for the PGP session (once would have been nice, but my laptop
crashed and I was late for a meeting, so had to go back afterward).
I definitely agree that the all-day "cookie room" was a great idea, and I'd
very much like to see this sort of thing again. It could do with a few
more tables and power than we had this time, and an all-day supply of water
or beverages would be good, too.
Of course, the potential negative aspect is that folks who aren't attenting
the session right before a cookie break can "camp out" and grab cookies
right as they arrive. But, that can happen anywhere...
