Hi Mapmaker Guy,

Many of us from around the world would be happy to be there for this great event, but would not be able to make it. Practically, some (or most) of us are a bit far way to make this trip. Is there a way to follow it online? Say, a live webcast of the event?? I'm sure Google, of all, could think of something!

The most common blood type in the community
is the most frequently needed blood type.

Donate Blood. Save Lives.

Interesting! I'd certainly like to attend this, and I live in
Bangalore. However the date is quite unfortunate; Tuesday is my
heaviest day in college in terms of the number of classes, so... I
will decide later.

(Won't a weekday be problematic for most people?)

Looking forward to hearing more details about this.

Also, is having >= 300 edits and < 300 moderations ok?

Aside from ~60 hours in the air and > USD1800, I'd like to be there,
too :)

GMM: Please set some time on the agenda for discussion of needed
features, and be able to come away with a priority list of features
that we need badly. It would be nice if such a list were posted here
ahead of time so people could add/comment on it.

more than 200 edits.

It's really good event, and i would be happy to be there (so many
questions ), but as been mentioned before, it is rather hard to get
there. This year i'm limited by Europe and just can't leave it.

I wish every one have good fun and fresh ideas!

Waiting for t-shirt.

Is it possible to have the discussions on UTUBE for the benefit of
others who are not present.

I know it requires additional effort but I guess it would be very
useful for those who are interested in this venture.

I would love to join you in Banglore.
Do you need my address to send me the ticket :)

If no ticket then I think it would better if we can catch the event
LIVE online and I promise I will wear the Google T-shirt on 21st of
April, 2009 if I have by then.
I hope it is Large size :)

A mí también me gustaría asistir, pero me queda demasiado lejos, vivo
en Costa Rica. También me gustaría seguir la conferencia vía Internet.
