Well, before we keep spinning more cycles, perhaps I can kill this
conversation quickly; Is anyone going to be *upset* if I suggest we
just drop IronPort and hold all meetings at Google?  Google is a nice
place.  I don't mind the drive to Google all that much.

IronPort can probably step up at another time if we need a room again.
 Remember, IronPort and Google both stepped up at the same time
because we were afraid of having *no* room when we lost Stanford.
It's not all that important to have more than one room.

So, if you're going to be upset if we drop IronPort, speak now or
forever hold your peace.

(By the way, if you're only hesitation is lack of public transit, I'm
sure many of us, myself included, will offer you a ride given you can
get to a nearby BART station.)
