Hey hey,

Couple of things about logistics.

Tents, chairs, tables, podia, microphones, projectors, screens, PA
equipment, speakers, etc? Everything? (Quite an agreement you've
arranged ;-)

Good. Two guards? Full time?

The video equipment will also need insurance.

It's spelled "cords" ;-), and they are the power cables. Traditionally
there are far too few of these.

Also, as Joerg will attest, getting a network together is a large
logistical task in and of itself -- who will be responsible for this?
This person or persons should start meeting soonish so that they can
plan for adequate equipment.

This equipment should also be covered by insurance...

I think that we should provide some refreshments. As the saying goes,
"programmers are machines for turning coffee into programs". At least
coffee, and I would hope some kind of mid-morning snack (the spanish
schedule is much later than the american one, and still a bit later than
the rest of europe...). But coffee and water should be there always IMO.
Last year was nice in the amount of edibles, only that the coffee ran
out at times. (Can you tell I like coffee? ;)

Depends on how many rooms we want to record, from where and at what
quality. Perhaps we can talk about this on the 28th.

By that I meant water, electricity, etc.. although I guess this would be
covered by the famous Vilanova - Generalitat agreement ;)

One more thing: where did you get the number for sponsored travel costs?
That number would seem to be to be quite flexible.
