Getting There:
We meet in Kiev Training Room of Building 40 at Google HQ in Mountain View. To locate our meeting place, use this map. If you've never been there, you may need a few extra minutes to navigate through the campus. To get to Kiev Training Room, you must enter through the lobby of Building 40. Once in the lobby, Google requires that you sign an electronic NDA and wear a sticky badge (watch out for your suede jackets). Please be courteous of their professional space and grant them this request. Security will escort you to Kiev Training Room after you've signed in. Thank you for your understanding.

Support Our Sponsors:
HP ProBook PC Powered By AMD, GE: $200 Million ecomagination challenge, rackspace hosting, Google, Dice, O'Reilly User Group, and LegalMatch

Hey, don't forget:
Tuesday, 12/21/2010, is also the Winter Solstice at 3:38 PM Pacific Time. And, for the first time since Gallileo, there's a lunar eclipse as well with partial eclipse starting at 10:33 PM, Monday night, 12/20/10 and continuing to 2 AM, 12/21. Path Map. Visibility Map. Not only is the Sun at its lowest but the Moon is disappearing, too -- so get out in the cold night air and annoy the neighbors by beating on those garbage can lids and other ceremonial noise makers to bring them back.... :-)

Thanks always for your support and participation. YOU make this Meetup great.

Catherine and Alec

    It was good to give people a chance to share ideas. Some of the ideas needed a few more minutes of time.
