Hi Adam,

Thanks for these questions.  We finished up our weekly conference call
and I'm preparing the announcement email for forwarding including our
group mail list, facebook, twitter and identi.ca info.  I think your
question about registration ending time is a good one and one which I
think I will include in the email I'm working on.  Shall we cut off
online registration on the 20th? On-site registration via special
arrangement to contact at olpcsf.org after that?

> * The last 4 questions (below) at the bottom of  the registration site are truly awesome, getting to the very *Heart* of why we're all coming.  Can we all please make the effort to make this public/shared data weekly, whether tabulated or summarized in any way, so everyone can take advantage of the 4 weeks til game time -- viscerally seeing/connecting with "Hot Topics" evolving?
