I should also point out that we will be hosting the OLPC SF Community
Summit 2011 October 21 thru 23, which is right before the ARM TechCon
2011 in Santa Clara, CA (45 miles south of San Francisco)
The ARM conference dates were one consideration in picking our summit
dates. Wrap up on Sunday, sightseeing on Monday, ARM conf on Tuesday
