instead of speeches; no specially printed materials, ... etc. ... This way,
even if we get closer to the holidays, it will not be out-of-place.
2. You mentioned that the venue can hold up to 200 people in a
standup/cocktail reception type setting.
3. We agreed that you (plus your team) and Nicholas Carroll ["team A"] will
work on inviting the media (and SRI related guests). Mary Coppernoll, Eugene
Kim, Joe William and I ["team B"] will be working on inviting the other
guests (the Augment and Bootstrap community, and Engelbart related guests).
Both our teams will start working on the guest list immediately, and will
coordinate when the lists are put together.
4. Thank you for the confirmation that SRI will be hosting the event (and
will be picking up the tab for the food and drinks, besides providing the
5. Our immediate action item is to tie down a date -- which we will hear
from you, as soon as you've got that locked-in.
Let me know if I've missed anything.
