We have a tentative deadline as of now to get the venue settled. most of the
colleges around are having their end semester examinations now and dont want
to be bothered for the next 2 weeks. i shall be taking to them as soon as
these exams get over and start making arrangements. meanwhile a couple of us
will also be going about photographing the venue and putting it on this list
for all the volunteers to have a look.
i shall ciculate an alpha draft of schedule by the end of tomorrow
(wednesday nov 3, 2010) following which we can grill it overhere and get it
ratified by the community.

we have two options.
A)we shall indulge in the community generated logo exercise again. and get
the logo finalized by the end of january.
B) use existing branding material from the previous years conference.

we need to decide on that.

can we put this in cold storage for now ? we will have some discussions
happening here and if people complain of a high noise to signal ratio, then
we shall take this up again.
