    I guess that's why nothing much happens at SELEM until after lunch.

    Would be great to see you there, Marc! Tons of cool stuff going on this year, including an expanded "home-build display area" in the cafeteria. Basically think Hackerspace meets Maker Faire only with less organization and more lasers! And that's in addition to all the other, more typical SELEM activities.

    We have a block of rooms reserved at the Holiday Inn Express as usual. Give them a call and mention you are with the "SELEM laser group". This year I specifically asked for some of the rooms for our group to be on the first floor near the conference room. Figured that would be more convenient *and* would cut down on the noise complaints for other guests, since we tend to get rather loud in the lounge and the conference room late at night...

    You can sleep in the parking lot at the venue if you want. Although you might want to see about splitting a room with someone instead. I think you'll want some air-conditioning when you try to sleep!

    Which is definitely a big part of the fun, assuming you are one of those folks who can stay awake that long. I usually drop in on the first night and the last night, but otherwise I need to crash at the Trotthouse as soon as we close up shop at the venue, or else I won't be conscious in time to open things up at 10 AM the following morning!

    This year will be the same. Several consoles set up so people can play. Also thinking about buying a few bean-bag chairs (assuming we have the budget) so folks can lounge around and watch the beams in there...

    And yeah, shutting down Club-SELEM every night is often a bit of a challenge! No one ever wants to leave... (Can't say I blame them though. It's pretty damned awesome in there!)

    What's the group rate? I just made a regular reservation at about $105/night.

    Hey Hank - I thought I had it written down, but I can't find it. (Sorry!) I know it wasn't a huge discount...

    They might have already given you the group rate though, based on the dates you booked. I would still give them a call and ask just to be sure...

    Just registered! First SELEM and my birthday will be on Sunday. Ferrous256 and I will want to do a Laser Juice demo. I am looking forward to playing with the Z-5 and any other synths. Is anyone else interested in a laser programming round table discussion?

    I'm interested in that or even just one-on-one discussion.

    Excellent! Got you added to the list, Tim!

    Brenden has been in touch with me via PM, and we definitely want to see you guys do a presentation on your software. I also suggested that you may want to have a small demo setup in the cafeteria (especially for "Lasers and Lattes").

    I think this would be a *GREAT* idea. There are plenty of folks who would love the chance to just sit in and listen to such a discussion, but we've also got some heavy hitters who would undoubtedly be qualified to actively participate in the chat. Thinking about Bluefang, DZ, Swamidog, Ekeefe, JohnYayas, and Lumia for sure... Maybe Bill Benner too? Firstlight_Mike? Countfunkula? Imagelight?

    I don't think it needs to be a super-formal event. Just get a bunch of tech geeks in a circle and start telling stories! But I know that *I* would love to just sit there listening and soaking up information... I'm sure others would too!

    Obviously if you want to get balls-deep in some technical minutia, you can always chat one-on-one, but given the recent resurgence of interest in laser abstracts, I think a round table discussion would be very well received. If you guys are up for it, I'll block some time out in the schedule for it.

    .
    In a circle of tech geeks, is there anyone out there who thinks for one minute you'd only be able to sit and listen?

    Fair enough... Although to my credit, I did sit and listen (mostly!) when Aron Bacs did his round table discussion on his history with AVI, right?

    That ranks among the top most amazing events I've had the pleasure to attend at SELEM.
